How about the weather, folks? Seriously, it’s about time for dry weather. I’m looking forward to a week of sun and warmth. Speaking of sun, nothing goes better with a nice, sunny Sunday morning than some fresh links.
In Mariners News...
- Here’s a Ljay Newsome scouting report.
- The Mariners are emphasizing pregame stretching more.
Watching the Mariners go through pre game stretch, I will say it appears they are doing more and they are taking it much more seriously than I've seen in past years. Everybody is doing everything. Used to be a lot of guys stepping away to talk to opposing players etc.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) April 21, 2018
- Evan White is showing well in Modesto.

- Ryan Divish gives insight on the Mariners’ upcoming roster move.
The Mariners have to make a roster move tomorrow to bring back Erasmo Ramirez. Guessing it could be a reliever which seems even more odd given tonight’s game. But that’s where they are at.— Ryan Divish (@RyanDivish) April 22, 2018
Around the League...
- Justin Verlander and Tim Anderson had an interesting encounter during Friday night’s win for the Astros.
- The Marlins didn’t uphold their promise to preserve Jose Fernandez’ locker.
- Sean Manaea threw a no-hitter.
- The team he no hit was the Red Sox, who are good.
Sean Manaea didn’t just no-hit any team, he shut down MLB’s top offense. pic.twitter.com/wNTr9wXB2R— MLB (@MLB) April 22, 2018
- An interesting note on Manaea’s no-hitter.
Manaea's pregame meal? Three burger sliders and a side of fries from a food truck that was in the players' parking lot this afternoon.— Jane Lee (@JaneMLB) April 22, 2018
An inspiration to us all.
- Here is an updated Combined WAR leaderboard, which essentially shows the pitching + hitting WAR of a player that both pitches and swings the bat.
- Read up on the “hidden no-hitter.”
- Here is the White Sox’ update on Danny Farquhar, who is stable but in critical condition.
