A lot of news is rolling in as spring training starts to wrap up.

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Houston Astros John Glaser-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everybody! It’s been a busy week in baseball and there was a lot going on yesterday in particular. Here’s a question for you all to ponder today.

Now, here’s what you need to know today.

In Mariners news...

  • Corey Brock at The Athletic wrote about a cool and peculiar reunion that the M’s helped to create this spring. ($)
  • These two are awesome.
  • This is one cut I was a little surprised by.
  • It’s hard not to get excited about this guy.

Around the league...

  • This is great news!
  • Things are getting weird in Port St. Lucie.
  • Walk through one of last summer’s greatest moments from David’s own words (maybe I’m biased on saying it was one of the greatest moments since I was there).
  • Before there was Kyler Murray, there was Notre Dame’s Pat Connaughton, who had to choose between baseball and basketball after college. Alan Siegel at The Ringer walks though Connaughton’s decision to play hoops and whether the two-way star made the right choice.
  • The Angels have not had good fortune with pitchers lately.
  • White Sox star prospect Eloy Jimenez will start the season in the minors, and even some of the team’s rivals are upset about the move.

Anders’ picks...

  • If you haven’t been paying attention to the lead-up to March Madness, it’s been pretty crazy. Selection Sunday will take place this weekend.
