It’s the weekend! I have a French final today at 8:30am, so my weekend is already off to a wonderful start. If you’re like me, and would rather study baseball, these links are a great place to start.

Enjoy!

In Mariners news...

  • The man that birthed this fabulous website made an appearance on The Extra Innings podcast to discuss the 2017 outlook for King Felix.

  • Jerry says he’s looking to build a Mariners outfield similar to that of the early 2000s. Yes please, any similarities to the 2001 team are greatly encouraged.
  • The Mariners have been known to encourage unique talents from their players by hosting piano recitals and placing a pool table in the middle of the clubhouse. I wonder if Taylor Motter will have to do some sort of hair growing demonstration...

Around the league...

  • Albert Pujols has been cleared to play after undergoing surgery in December.
  • Blue Jays pitcher T.J. House was hit in the head by a come-backer in a scary moment during yesterday’s game. Thankfully, after undergoing tests, House reported that he will make a full recovery.
  • For all of you fantasy baseballers, Steve Gardner of USA Today has come up with projected lineups for every MLB team.
  • Dave Cameron examines how the Cubs and the Astros differ in paying their pre-arbitration superstars.

Adam’s picks...

  • Did you know in France it’s considered condescending and rude to smile at someone during conversation? Maybe you did and this is dumb, but I was surprised to learn that in French class, and it explains the false perception that the French are unfriendly.
