Happy Wednesday y’all! The offseason news continues to trickle in as teams wrap up their bookkeeping heading into free agency. Here’s what went down yesterday.
In Mariners news...
- At the Mariners official team blog, they talked to J.P. Crawford about his first season in Seattle.
Around the league...
- I definitely did not think that former Mariners prospect Phillipe Aumont was still playing baseball.
- The Yankees are considering bringing in David Cone to serve as the team’s pitching coach.
- The automated strike zone will be coming to Minor League Baseball in some capacity, reports Evan Drellich at The Athletic. ($)
- It appears that the Cubs are moving in a totally different direction.
The reckoning didn't stop with Joe Maddon. The Cubs have cut ties with a mental skills director, yoga instructor, massage therapist and strength coaches. Ex-Padres manager Andy Green is also a candidate to join David Ross' staff. Story with @sahadevsharma: https://t.co/xABZK4v1bd— Patrick Mooney (@PJ_Mooney) November 5, 2019
- The crew running the ship in St. Louis is sticking around.
The holiday season comes early in St. Louis: President John Mozeliak, GM Mike Girsch and manager Mike Shildt get multi-year extensions locking them up through 2022 with #STLCards.— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) November 5, 2019
- I thought he had already done so, but Adam Rosales announced his retirement from baseball yesterday.
- Because I know you needed more cat content.
