Hi everyone! My name is Becca, and I’m new to the Lookout Landing team. Just a little bit about me: I fell in love with baseball at an early age, and the ballpark has become my home away from home. I wanted to combine my passion for sports and writing so I started my own sports blog at age 13. Now, I’m very excited to now be writing for Lookout Landing! I look forward to our upcoming Mariners season and sharing my writing with you! And with that, here are your links for today!

- Justin Verlander is not thinking about retirement any time soon.
Justin Verlander is a free agent for 1st time after year and while “I plan to pitch into my mid 40s,” he also said, “I don’t need to sign a 5-year deal.” JV, 35, is OK going shorter and betting on himself, as long as value is right; he’s “cognizant” of potential effect on market.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) March 6, 2019
