Happy Sunday everyone!

Some of you might already know him from Field Gulls, but my friend Mike Bar is somewhat of a master at creating hype videos. Take a look at his newest Mariners teaser:

Here are the rest of today’s links.

In Mariners news...

  • Ryan Divish writes about the relative stability of this year’s bullpen to those of the past. Here’s to hoping the M’s can build on last year’s success.
  • Greg Johns takes a shot at predicting the Opening Day 25-man roster. Nothing here really comes at a surprise, but it’s nice to see the roster laid out in full.

Around the league...

  • The Dodgers weren’t done after signing Franklin Gutierrez, as they have also agreed to a one-year deal with Chase Utley.
  • Mike Ilitch, owner of the Detroit Tigers and Red Wings, passed away yesterday.
  • For anyone who enjoys a good sports back story, it doesn’t get much better than Michael Lorenzen’s first pitch home run after the passing of his father.
  • The Rangers signed Anthony Bass to a minor league contract with a Spring Training invite. Bass spent last season in Japan after being released by the Mariners.

Adam’s pick...

  • Remember Jimmer Fredette? Apparently he’s averaging 37.3 points per game in China.
