Good morning and welcome to a Monday off-day. Gross, right? Well, I guess it’s not THAT bad. For one thing, the Mariners deserve a day off, just like all hard-workin’ folk do. The Mariners put in some good work this last week, going 5-2 against the Angels and Red Sox. And today they get a day of rest before playing the Yankees in the den of inequity known as new Yankee Stadium. Because this is 2018 and everything is bonkers, I feel shockingly confident in the Mariners chances. More like AL Least, in my humble opinion #VoteSegura #VoteHaniger

In case you missed it, Lydia Cruz from 710 ESPN is selling these neat Mariners-themed shirts and the proceeds benefit charity:
The Mariners are GOOD and so are their fans. I was inspired by this collective goodness to design a tee that I hope will do some good. 100% of the proceeds will go to charity, as voted on by you. If you like good things, this might be for you. #GoMarinershttps://t.co/qhA0HwNEmw— Lydia Cruz (@TheLydiaCruz) June 7, 2018
