Good morning, everyone! I’ve got some links for you because it’s Friday, you ain’t got no job (you likely have a job), and you ain’t got stuff to do (you probably do have things to do).

Anyway, here you go:

  • “If I want to play next year, I need to go out there and pitch.”

Felix Hernandez threw live BP yesterday, and talked a little about the future.

  • Baseball America ranks the Mariners farm system #11
  • Here is the first in a series of articles coming from the Athletic on the Mariner’s acadmy in the Dominican Republic ($):
  • The Mariners announce an upcoming Ichiro weekend in September:
  • Good news for Domingo/the Mariners chances of trading him:

Around the league...

  • Boomstick, baby indeed:
  • A trade!

  • The Ray’s playoff hopes just took a hit:
  • Edwin Diaz left the game today after being hit by a line drive in his left toe. This is some good news:

  • His retirement will be an active retirement:

Amanda’s picks...
