Sunday morning links are better than the Sunday morning paper.

Not only is today Sunday, but it’s also the final day of this brutal road trip to start the baseball season. The Mariners just dropped their fifth game, which may be alarming and frustrating for some of you; however, Jarrod Dyson is confident the club has what it takes to overcome their slow start. Similarly, I’m confident I have the links required to get you through this slow Sunday.

In Mariners news...

  • Tyler O’Neill didn’t wait long before hitting his first home run of the season.
  • Chris Heston got quite a few whiffs in his start for the Rainiers last night.

Around the league...

  • Some teams aren’t having as much trouble scoring runs as the Mariners.
  • Aledmys Diaz hit a baseball very far in batting practice.

Luke’s picks...

  • Jeff Sullivan posted this a while back, but I think it’s worth another read. Take a look at his breakdown of the trade that brought Mitch Haniger and Jean Segura to Seattle.
