Go Mariners. It feels so good to say it out loud. It also feels good to repeat it in your head. Baseball season feels so close, but seems so far away at the same time. Why can’t Spring Training start tomorrow?
In Mariners News...
- Zach Crizer named Ariel Miranda as a potential future ace.
- Former Mariners video coordinator Carl Hamilton passed away. Our thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends.
Saddened to hear of the passing of long-time #Mariners video coordinator Carl Hamilton. Was a pioneer in the field.— Bob Dutton (@TNT_Mariners) January 28, 2018
Carl was a tremendous person who genuinely cared about those around him. He had a remarkable career, including 21 years w/Seattle. In 2005, the PBVCA awarded its 1st-ever award for excellence to Carl & voted unanimously to name the annual excellence award the Carl Hamilton Award. https://t.co/hr3mwrnzjK— Kelly Munro (@kmunro1) January 28, 2018

- The Mariners have more prospects in the top 100 than some other teams, so there’s that.

Around the League...
- I hope to see similar first pitches at Safeco this year.
- Michael Young weighed in on steroid usage and the Hall of Fame.
This HOF/steroid thing has layer after layer. 1) ideally, I’d love to see clean players rewarded, 2) MLB profited bigly ( ) during that era and now writers are unfairly being asked to be judge n jury, 3) guys were trying to get an edge decades ago, 4) this is exhausting.— Michael Young (@MikeyY626) January 27, 2018
- Callie got 50,000 retweets, meaning her prom group will take pictures at Citi Field.
