News and stories about the Seattle Mariners and other analysis from around the league.

Happy Jackie Robinson Day everyone! Here are your Tuesday links:

  • Taijuan Walker will make a rehab outing tonight for Triple-A Tacoma.
  • Hisashi Iwakuma will throw a 55-pitch bullpen session, which includes exercising his injured finger by throwing splitters.
  • Shannon Drayer has a post up in which LLoyd McClendon explains his lineup construction during last night's game. Whatever he did sure seemed to work, at least for the one game.
  • Geoff Baker of the Seattle Times discusses the Mariners' financial situation and suggests that financially, the M's "still can't spot their ceiling with a telescope."
  • In case you're wondering how the Mariners' minor leaguers have been doing, Jason Churchill of Prospect Insider has a wrap-up of the past week.
  • I guess Jeff and Matthew of U.S.S. Mariner are doing podcasts every week now. Here's their latest episode.
  • Could Portland, Oregon be the future location of the Oakland A's?
  • Crawfish Boxes thinks Astros fans should demand more from its favorite team.
  • Dave Cameron at Fangraphs discusses that new stupid catching rule everyone hates.
  • Jesse Chavez appears to be the newest Billy Beane diamond-in-the-rough acquisition, and Fangraphs breaks down what it is that makes him effective.
  • Jedd Gyorko and the Padres got into the extension party by agreeing to a 5-year, $35MM deal with a sixth year option attached. I swear before long we will see a free agency class where the biggest name is Pedro Strop.
  • Another popular trend these days is pitchers getting Tommy John Surgery, and Matt Moore of the Rays is the latest example.
  • Grant Brisbee lists the top 10 most valuable pitchers in the game.
