Happy New Year links!

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Baltimore Orioles Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone and happy first day of 2018! I hope you all had a fantastic 2017 and I wish you all the very best of 2018’s as well. Let’s get your day — and year — started off with some fresh links.

In Mariners news...

  • The known grump and always-stingy voter Murray Chass selected Edgar among his four votes, and says he was considering voting only for Edgar both this year and last year.
  • NFL season has ended, and this year’s finale gives the Mariners a sad distinction that I’m sure you’re going to hear way too often this year.

Around the league...

Anders’ picks...

Kate’s picks...

  • Hello 2018! We are back this week with all-new CONTENT, after taking last week off. When Jerry vacations, so do we, but this week we kick off the return of the 40 in 40 (first piece up later today! I clued it on Twitter with this, but no one seemed to guess). We hope you enjoyed some time off for the holidays and are glad to have you back with us for 2018. We are also resolutely ignoring the fact that, with the Bills making the postseason, the Mariners now have the longest playoff drought in American pro sports. Ride or die, my chickadees, ride or die.
