Snowpocalypse Round 2!

How’s everyone holding up through the unending snow? NWS Seattle has been providing some timely updates on Twitter about what the future holds. Another winter storm watch is in effect for Sunday and Monday.

It doesn’t sound like that will be the end of things either. Apparently, we can expect this type of weather for the next 1-2 weeks.

Earlier this week, a person from California that just moved up to the states asked me if this weather was normal in Seattle. I said that it wasn’t and that we rarely get snow that sticks around here. I would like to apologize to that person. I did not do my part in preparing you for what lies ahead.

Without further ado, let’s get onto the links!

In Mariners News...

  • It was Graduation Day for the Mariners and their student athletes at their academy in the Dominican Republic.

  • Let’s go apartment hunting with Mallex Smith.
  • Ken Griffey Jr. braving the cold.
  • Baseball America published some prospect rankings. One article ranks the top corner outfield prospects. Julio Rodriguez is 11th on that list. Also, three Mariners made their top 40 centerfield prospects list ($).
  • Is that a little subtweet, James?
  • The Mariners’ snow promotion should yield cheap tickets for their August 6th and 7th match ups with the San Diego Padres.

Around the League...

  • MLB made a big step for inclusivity by changing the “disabled list” to the “injured list.” Hayden from Twinkie Town provides excellent perspective on the change of language.

Luke’s Pick...

  • We are about to break a February record for snowfall! Also, the mountain deserves a shoutout for making an appearance in the middle of a snowstorm.
