Good morning! It is with a heavy heart that I must announce today is an off-day for the Mariners. I know, I know. They're fun to watch and you don't know what to do with your off-day. If only there was a place to go to catch up on news during an off-day. Oh wait. You're already here. Well without further ado...

  • Blake Parker was claimed off waivers by the Yankees.
  • Jeff Sullivan breaks down James Paxton's four strikeouts of Mike Trout.
  • In case you missed it, Alex Rodriguez will play his final game as a Yankee on Friday in what is essentially a forced retirement.
  • Ichiro reached his 3,000th career hit on a triple.
  • Prince Fielder suddenly announced an injury-induced retirement. Interestingly, he retires with the same exact career home run total as his father (319).
  • Carlos Gomez has been DFA'd by the Astros.
  • The Cubs are back, writes Marc Normandin.
  • Tim Tebow is considering launching a career in baseball.
  • Buster Posey had a pretty embarrassing slide the other night.
