Thanksgiving links! Unconventional I suppose, but still good!

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Los Angeles Angels Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone. If you’re in the States somewhere, then Happy Thanksgiving! If not, then happy Thursday! Everyone deserves to have a fun day, regardless of circumstance. Let’s hope these links can start that day off on the right foot.

In Mariners news...

  • Mitch Haniger helped make this holiday special for kids in Hawaii.
  • The Mariners have launched a new regular podcast with Aaron Goldsmith and Jerry Dipoto. The first episode is a must-listen. Dipoto is very transparent about the team’s approach with Shohei Ohtani, the recent acquisition of Ryon Healy, and other team musings. There are some cool nuggets of info sprinkled throughout, and it’s definitely worth the listen.
  • It wouldn’t be a Dipoto Thanksgiving without some spicy rumors.

Around the league...

  • Oakland and Baltimore completed a minor trade.
  • Cespedes Family BBQ continues its release of “free agent matrixes” with an analysis of where Ohtani could wind up.
  • This kid seems to be extremely intelligent.

Anders’ picks...

  • ...someone explain.
