Good morning everyone! Unfortunately, today is an off day and we cannot watch the Mariners destroy worlds. Instead, you must suffer through some stories about other things. Sorry about that:
- Marc W previews the Mariners minor league system.
- Jeff Sullivan wrote a piece about Felix Hernandez that scared me.
- John Sickels at Minor League Ball does a short profile on Tony Zych.
- Jeff Sullivan takes a deep look at Garrett Richards' changeup.
- Bryce Harper wore an interesting postgame hat.
- Matt Garza will miss four-to-six weeks with a strained lat.
- August Fagerstrom says Noah Syndergaard is what Aroldis Chapman was supposed to be.
- Kenta Maeda (yes, a pitcher) hit a home run in his first major league game.
