Mariners season opener to be on ESPN2

I can't remember the last time ESPN had the Mariners on so that's nice.

Tony La Russa could be the Mariners new club president

Not quite there yet though. Per Bob Nightengale, This is speculation but there's some actual meat here. Mariners began interviewing two internal candidates this week. Howard Lincoln did not confirm nor deny La Russa's candidacy. The forgotten story is looking to get more interesting in the coming weeks. Edit: Ryan Divish reports that interviews begin next week with internal candidates. There are also external candidates for consideration.

Beyond the Boxscore on Mariners lineup efficiency

Interesting saber take on our upcoming lineup, pre-Guti re-sign. The author advocates for WFB in the outfield regularly over Ackley...

Fangraphs podcast with Tony Blengino

Listening now, there's at least some talk about the FO stuff from the Baker article.

Roy Halladay to retire

No real Mariner relevance beyond my vague idea of signing him as a low-cost, high-ceiling flyer, but sad to see him out of the game.

Kyle Seager Listed At #48 On Grantland's MLB Trade Value Column

Over at Bill Simmons' pop culture, sports, pop culture, gardening, horoscope, pop culture, literature, pop culture, and book club website, Grantland.com, baseball writer Jonah Keri has a nice blurb about our own KS, in which a couple of rival execs are quoted with glowing comments.

Mat Gamel: Freely available talent

Just another example of what they talk about when they say "freely available talent". At the least, he'd add good depth for a team in AAA. At best, some team might finally give him a shot to see if maybe he really can hit in the Majors.

Who Makes MLB's Schedules? (well, used to)

I had absolutely no idea who or what company was responsible for drawing up every team's MLB schedule until I saw this wonderfully made video by ESPN Films. I know everyone complains how it always turns out, but this video really puts it in perspective a bit better and just how frustrating that job must be... or must have been, since they got replaced in 2005. Wonderful video, I recommend it to all baseball fans interested in how the big machine used to work.
