Mariners Moose Tracks, 1/25/20: Nick Margevicius, Sabrina Ionescu, Caroline Polachek

Weekends are for consuming content. Shirk your responsibilities, ditch your family at a local shopping mall, become one with the algorithm. The Marlins are about to sign a reliever

NCAA Womens Basketball: Oregon St. at Oregon Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

In Mariners News...

  • Seattle added a pitcher who spent last season throwing 57 innings for the Padres. Reggie McClain, the Mariners’ 16th-round pick in 2016, was DFA’d to make room on the 40-man roster.
  • Someone give the moose my number.

Around the League...

  • The Astros got in trouble for doing a whole mess of things they weren’t supposed to do. As a result, their manager and GM got fired. I enjoyed it a lot. But fear not, Astros fans who snuck your way in here. A savior is on the horizon! He went to Dartmouth (so he’s #smart), and he played baseball for a long time (so he respects the game).
  • Pittsburgh is bringing the script-style font back to their jerseys.
  • This entire bullet point is just Tim Anderson.
  • I feel you, robot umps.
  • This Clinton Yates story on Ron Washington begins with “It’s 7:15 a.m. on Sunday, and Ron Washington is smoking a cigarette and drinking coffee in the dugout. The Atlanta Braves third-base coach is getting ready for his day, taking his ‘personal time,’ as he puts it. But he can hardly get through that. He’s too popular.” I passed out from coolness exposure after that.

Matthew’s Picks...

  • Sabrina Ionescu broke Gary Payton’s all-time conference record in assists on Friday night. Oregon and Oregon State play again on Sunday, both teams are ranked in the top ten, and you can watch the game on ESPN2.
  • I enjoyed reading this.
  • For the six of you who care, I’ve been obsessed with these two songs recently:
