Happy Wednesday!

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Minnesota Twins Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone! Today’s the big day; we’ll find out whether Edgar Martinez will receive a bid to the Hall of Fame on his ninth year of eligibility, or whether he’ll have to wait next year to learn his fate. The announcement is slated for 6pm eastern, 3pm pacific today. Here are some links to hold you over until then.

In Mariners news...

  • Everett native and Rays outfielder Steven Souza, Jr. went after a Tampa Bay beat reporter who didn’t include Edgar on his ballot.

Around the league...

  • Left-handed pitcher Glen Perkins has decided to retire.
  • The latest edition of Short Relief compares some of the best free agents on the market to a gigantic robotic spider.
  • Uhh...he knows those always end up online later right?
  • It looks like the Brewers are going in hard after top players on the market.
  • Lindsey Adler thinks that expanding the ballot gives Edgar Martinez an easier path to the Hall.
  • Jeez, you don’t hear about third offenses very often.
