Lookout Linkage, 1/10/15

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

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Hello everyone! You guys want to know something funny? I know that when I make a mistake I should probably just correct it quietly and go on with my life, but instead I'm going to put a big glowing sign on it. I mis-named the last edition of linkage. Instead of calling it "Lookout Linkage", the title proudly claims to be "Lookout Landing." I probably shouldn't be surprised it finally happened, given the number of occasions that I accidentally named it that before and corrected it before publishing. Oh well! Baseball lives on. Now that this article is correctly-titled, let's allow it to serve its purpose:

  • In case you missed it, the Mariners released reliever Anthony Bass in order to allow him to pursue a career in Japan.
  • In response to the release of Bass, the M's have inked reliever Ryan Cook to a one-year deal.
  • Dave Cameron compares the career trajectory of Mike Trout with that of Ken Griffey, Jr.
  • David DeJesus is a very bad base-stealer, writes Jeff Sullivan.
  • The Giants have signed outfielder Denard Span to a three-year contract.
  • August Fagerstrom wonders if closers deserve to be in the Hall of Fame.
  • The Nationals have hired ex-Marlins GM Dan Jennings as a special assistant to the GM in Washington.
  • The Blue Jays have acquired reliever Drew Storen for outfielder Ben Revere.
