that bullpen, yeah that one! that’s the bullpen who severely hurt my hall of fame chances. thanks guys. thanks a lot (ass continues to get redder)

Wheeee, it’s Monday again. Hope everyone had a great weekend. Eric here filling in for trusty Anders as he attends the Winter Meetings in search of the one true SCOOP. Get ‘em, Ders!

Not a ton of news from over the weekend, but let’s get into them LINKS.

Mariners news

  • We’ll kick off with the biggest news that broke yesterday:

Seems bad!

  • Uncle Corey confirms it is (or could be) pretty bad:
  • In former (sniff, sob) Mariners news, Denard Span had a sucessful holiday fundraiser for the Denard Span Foundation:
  • Hey, cool, hop on the giant pile of outfielders, kid. Get cozy:
  • Raise your hand if you forgot Zach Vincej was no longer a Mariner:
  • Finally, Braden Bishop allegedly saved a bird’s life with a Starbucks straw over the weekend, no big deal:
  • Even has video (and a metaphor for the current Mariners) of the saved bird?

Around baseball

  • Harold Baines and Lee Smith got into the Baseball Hall of Fame by the Today’s Game Era Committee. Former Mariners manager Lou Piniella missed it by one vote:
  • Some folks are less than please about Baines in particular, but it certainly bodes well for Edgar Martinez getting in:
  • Cool, cool, cool:
  • Comin’ for your job, Boras:
  • Facts are facts and happy birthday to Mike Mussina, who crushed my dreams in game one of the 1997 ALDS (still the only Mariners playoff game I’ve attended in person):
