MLB: Spring Training-Philadelphia Phillies at New York Yankees Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone! Yesterday brought some pretty sad but ultimately necessary news for M’s fans: James Paxton will no longer pitch for Seattle. There was a lot of fallout from the deal, and we’ve got all of that and more in this morning’s edition of the links.

In Mariners news...

  • Looks like Paxton was nearly an Astro.
  • Justus Sheffield is not only happy to be a Mariner, he’s also great at utilizing pop culture (for those unaware, this is in reference to the latest Ariana Grande song).
  • A pretty fun connection for the newest M’s prospects.
  • It sounds like the Paxton trade was nearly much bigger.
  • It is time to begin campaigning for #EdgarHOF.

Around the league...

  • The Indians have released a new alternate jersey, which is completely free of Chief Wahoo.
  • Sounds like the Paul Goldschmidt trade talks are accelerating.
  • David Schoenfield takes a look at the 20 new additions to the MLB Hall of Fame ballot.

Anders’ picks...

  • Meanwhile in men’s college hoops last night... (Rutgers would go on to win 63-36)
