Happy Thursday! The holiday lights are coming down and the truly gray days of winter are upon us, but luckily there’s lots of news to keep your mind busy and distracted from the creeping Winter Sads:

In Mariners news...

  • ‘00s nostalgia is real: Dustin Ackley is in the Mariners organization again. This has caused a surprising amount of divisiveness among the LL staff! Read John’s blurb here.
  • Baseball Prospectus has an updated list of the Top 10 Mariners prospects. ($)
  • Baseball America raises the question of whether prospect Justin Dunn will be a starter or reliever with the Mariners.
  • Greg Johns has some dates for you to write down.

Also, if you’re planning to go to Spring Training, make sure to check out our Spring Training guide!

  • We also have some info for the Mariners’ Opening Series in Japan:

Around the league...

  • Shelby Miller is a Ranger. Sometimes I’m really glad I don’t have to do Sporcle quizzes about the Rangers pitching over the past five years.

Kate’s picks...

  • I guess this is better than MLB’s Facebook Watch games?
  • In sad news: former Seahawk and current Charger Brandon Mebane tragically lost his infant daughter yesterday. Despite the pain, Mebane plans to play in LA’s playoff game on Sunday. I have no rooting interest in the NFL, but I will be pulling for him.
