Good morning everyone and happy Thursday! Spring training rolls along and March Madness is also right around the corner, for all of you college hoops fans out there. But this is a baseball website, so let’s review baseball stuff (mostly).

In Mariners news...

  • This ESPN longform on Ichiro and his battle wit his mental demons is must-read material.
  • This is an amazing statistic.
  • Luke Arkins at Prospect Insider is concerned that the M’s signing of Ichiro displays that they aren’t committed to winning.
  • It looks like we’ll probably be seeing Mitch Haniger back in action soon.
  • Dee Gordon doesn’t seem to be having many problems in his transition to the outfield.

Around the league...

Anders’ picks...

  • The University of Washington men’s basketball team fell to Oregon State last night, possibly ending their season. They’ll probably get an invite to the NIT, but an NCAA Tournament bid is a real longshot at this point.
