Mariners Moose Tracks, 3/13/17: So Long Pat Venditte, Segura’s Big Game, Nathan For You

Three Mondays from now is Opening Day!

New M’s shortstop Jean Segura is giving his doubters a chance to check themselves before they wreck themselves.

Happy Monday M’s fans!

I don’t know about you, but my first full day of extra daylight sure made me feel like we’re closer to summertime and Mariners baseball.

In Mariners news...

  • This weekend featured yet another player swap for trade-aficianado Jerry Dipoto.
  • Ariel Miranda, Casey Fien, and Rob Whalen struggled against the Angels, while Max “The Tall Wall” Povse turned in an impressive three inning performance, bringing his spring total to six perfect innings.

  • Another day, another big performance from a Mariners Dominican Republic player in the World Baseball Classic. Jean Segura stole the show this time, going 3-6 with a stolen base, 2 runs and 3 RBI.
  • It sounds like another one of Jerry’s new acquisitions will get a chance to display his stuff on a worldwide stage soon.

Around the league...

  • Rockies first baseman Ian Desmond fractured his left hand after being hit by a pitch
  • The United States blanked Canada on the back of another impressive start by a U.S. pitcher, advancing to the second round of the World Baseball Classic
  • Ex-Mariner Willy Mo Pena is back in the big leagues (for now). He can still hit dingers.
  • Kevin Kiermaier is still good at defense.

Ben’s Pick...

  • I stumbled into rediscovering one of the funniest shows I’ve ever watched. I highly recommend checking it out.
