MLB: Kansas City Royals at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Today is the beginning of Spokane’s annual Hoopfest tournament. It’s the best weekend of all time. If you want to follow my team, or any other team for that matter, you can track teams and players using this link.

On a more Mariners-oriented thought, how about Mike Zunino’s 454 foot dinger?

The Mariners are back to 21 games above .500 and hold a seven-game lead over the Athletics for the second wild card spot. Great stuff. Now onto the links.

In Mariners News...

  • Shannon Drayer talked with Edwin Diaz about his recent day off.
  • Go Rainiers.

Around the League...

  • Former Mariner prospect Pablo Lopez has gone from Modesto to the majors in a year.
  • Former Mariner Paul Fry got called up to Baltimore.
  • I’m confused.

Luke’s Pick...

  • Shout out to Matthew for finding this. Deion Sanders tallied eight hits for the Braves in the 1992 World Series.
  • Read up on Jevon Moore and the work he’s done in the mental health field for college athletes.

Kate’s pick:

Tonight is Turn Ahead the Clock Night and we’re excited to have Amanda making her grand re-entrance to LL in order to recap it. In case you missed it, definitely check out this story from Corey Brock for the Athletic ($) where he caught up with a lot of the major players (on the field and off) involved in the first TATC night. Spoiler alert: a lot of the players saw their future bald selves on the video board that night.
