Salutations, readers. Today is both Halloween and the first day in several months that Denard Span is not a Seattle Mariner. The spookiest day on the calendar has a way of doing things like that.

In Mariners news...

  • Edgar Martínez has changed roles within the organization, going from hitting coach to Organizational Hitting Advisor. This is the part where I make a joke about Edgar taking a step back to plan his trip to Cooperstown next summer.
  • As mentioned in the intro, the Mariners declined Denard Span’s $12-million option for next season, per a 4:20 Ryan Divish tweet.
  • Meanwhile, Marco Gonzales and his wife are in Italy looking like a Calvin Klein commercial.

  • Feast your eyes upon this MLB Bad Lip Reading video.

Matthew’s Picks...

  • This GQ profile of Katie Nolan was a thoroughly enjoyable read.
  • Punch Up The Jam is one of my favorite podcasts and a delightful listen for music fans. Every week, comedians Miel Bredouw and Demi Adejuyigbe break down a song line-by-line, often highlighting its ridiculous or nonsensical lyrics, then end each episode by playing their new, “punched up” version of the song. It’s dope.
  • Get it girl.
