Hey everyone! Sorry for my prolonged absence from the links. I had finals week and I was also dealing with a nasty fever. I’m back in the Seattle area now and mostly done with the symptoms, so let’s get you reading some fresh new links!

In Mariners news...

  • It sure is a record-breaking season!
  • But here’s some good news for you.
  • Well that was quick: Edwin Díaz may be given the closer’s role again soon.
  • The Mariners inked outfielder Keury De La Cruz to a minor league contract.

Around the league...

  • Several Venezuelan players for the Texas Rangers are taking a stand against the actions of the government back home.
  • The Nationals are having a really tough time with their bullpen lately. The M’s will get a chance to see their relief corps in action on Tuesday.
  • Buster Olney says that all of this beanball taking place in the game has to come to an end.
  • Mike Trout is getting into legendary territory these days. Terry Collins says he considered intentionally walking the outfielder even though the bases were loaded.
  • Eric Gagne has decided to officially hang ‘em up.

Anders’ picks...

  • Even without Isaiah Thomas helping them out, the Boston Celtics won a game against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals.
