Good morning everyone! I hope you’re having a great weekend. Yesterday the Mariners were chased indoors by the rain, but hopefully they can get back out on the field today for the first full-squad workouts.

Let’s see what else went on around the baseball world.

In Mariners news...

  • Being shut inside due to rain gave Nelson Cruz plenty of time to pick out his new office supplies.
  • Leonys Martin didn’t report to camp with the rest of the position players. His absence is excused due to personal reasons.
  • Like you, Robbie can’t wait for opening day.

Around the league...

  • The Padres have agreed to a one-year, $3 million deal with Jered Weaver. Weaver is pretty much done at this point, so I’m curious what the Padres feel they’re getting from this deal aside from possible clubhouse leadership.
  • The Yankees won their arbitration hearing with Dellin Betances, but club president Randy Levine was a total ass about it. It’s your time to shine, LL. Roast this man. [Ed. note: I will start. This dude looks like John Candy crossed with a Mario mushroom.-KP]
  • Jerry Crasnick discusses how the Indians’ pitching staff is working to avoid an October hangover after last years grueling postseason run.
  • Angels owner Arte Moreno says the Angels won’t be leaving Anaheim any time soon, and that he anticipates having more money to spend on the team this year, which sucks.

Adam’s picks...

  • I’m not much of a mountain biker, but this dude is insane.
