Things are looking up for the Mariners... not so much for another AL West team

In Mariners news...

  • It would seem Seattle Times Mariners beat writer Ryan Divish has been coerced into doing a weekly Twitter mailbag. Here’s the first one, which is worth a read. There are some interesting questions and answers in it, many concerning Robinson Canó.
  • Speaking of Robinson Canó, the New York Times published this article over the weekend about how the Mariners are doing without him. Boo, national media. Stay away! Nothing to see here!
  • Jim Moore wonders what the Mariners are going to do with Félix Hernández. He lays out the options that seem relatively plausible for the team.
  • Sure, you might say that this doesn’t bode incredibly well for the rest of the season.
  • Counterpoint: here’s one big reason they’ve been so successful.

Around the League...

  • Some news that, if true, is absolutely devastating for Shohei Ohtani, the Los Angeles Angels, and most fans of baseball in general. It looks like Ohtani is slated for Tommy John surgery, which certainly cause him to miss the rest of this year, probably cause him to miss all of next year, and possibly mean he isn’t full strength until 2021.
  • The Mets have released Adrián González just five months after signing him. Not José Reyes, though. Haha! The Mets are so incompetent!
  • A swap of former Mariners means that Brad Miller will (thankfully) not return to the Mariners.
  • This person got a fancy new tattoo... and it’s the Blue Jays logo. Oops.

Zach’s pick...
