Whelp, the Mariners are 0-2 and it hasn’t been much fun to watch. However, consider these encouraging words from Andrew as you start your day.

Now let’s get to the links.

In Mariners news...

  • The Mariners haven’t played the best baseball thus far, but they do have the best promotions in the league coming our way in 2017.
  • Jerry Crasnick of ESPN discusses how the Mariners are going against the grain by prioritizing outfield defense.
  • Drew Smyly was moved to the 60-day DL.

Around the league...

  • Stephen Piscotty endured a very unfortunate inning in which he got hit by three different baseballs.
  • Astros prospect Jonathan Arauz was suspended 50 games after testing positive for Methamphetamine. The 18 year-old shortstop is currently ranked as the No. 18 prospect in the Astros’ system.
  • The Braves enlisted Allen Iverson to address the parking concerns around their new stadium.

Adam’s picks...

  • Tony Romo is hanging up the cleats.
  • Most of you have probably seen this already, but Stephen Piscotty’s ordeal was strikingly similar, so I felt obligated to link.
