News just (relatively) broke that the arbitration panel hearing Ryan Braun's appeal ruled in his favor, reportedly in a 2-1 decision. Ryan Braun is a Milwaukee Brewer, a team whom the Mariners do not play this season and do not directly compete with at all unless they two somehow reach the World Series, in which case this still would not have mattered. What I'm saying is that this has basically, potentially totally, nothing to do with the Mariners.
But it's rather big general baseball news. So here's a place to discuss it if you want.
