Happy Sunday, everyone! It’s almost time to go back to work tomorrow! Here are some links to help numb the pain:

In Mariner Land...

  • If you’ve ever wanted to see Nelson Cruz milk a cow, today is your lucky day.
  • Baseball America takes a look at the Pazos-Littell trade with a brief analysis of each player.
  • The door is not completely closed on Tom Wilhelmsen being a Seattle Mariner in 2017.

In other news...

  • Craig Edwards of FanGraphs thinks Dexter Fowler should age fairly well regardless of defense.
  • 19-year-old Yankee prospect Gleyber Torres has been named the Arizona Fall League MVP. It’s about time Yankees fans have something to cheer about.
  • The Mesa Solar Sox are your Arizona Fall League champions. Cubs prospect Ian Happ homered twice in their championship win over the Surprise Saguaros.
  • Three years ago, the Houston Astros gave Jon Singleton a 5-year, $10m deal before he ever appeared in MLB. Yesterday, he was placed on outright waivers.
  • Torii Hunter and LaTroy Hawkins could be returning to the Twins’ organization in front-office roles.

Bonus pick of the day...

During the 2011-12 NBA season, they played this commercial for a short period of time. To this day, it’s one of my favorite sports commercials ever made.
