Good morning everyone! We have two Mariner-less days ahead of us here but here are some links to get you through that first morning:

  • Blake Beavan has rather quietly begun his rehab assignment.
  • The Mariners officially released John Buck.
  • Jack Zdurencik recently went on record saying he has no intention of trading M's top prospect D.J. Peterson.
  • Here's a link to the latest U.S.S. Mariner podcast episode.
  • If you're wondering how the Futures Game went down (a game which featured two M's prospects) here's a quick summary.
  • Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish breaks down the latest trade buzz and talks about what the Mariners might do.

  • Tony Blengino of Fangraphs tells the story of Alfredo Simon, the unlikely All-Star that was.
  • The MLB has announced that Billy Bean (probably not the one you're thinking of) will be the Ambassador For Inclusion for baseball. If you haven't heard this yet I recommend reading about this interesting development.
  • I don't know if you saw Jeff Samardzija's All-Star introduction but man...poor guy.
