Good morning folks! Let’s get you some links to kick off your Thursday.
In Mariners news...
- I wonder what this could be about.
Around the league...
- Ken Rosenthal at The Athletic gets quotes from around the league on Justin Turner’s irresponsible actions Tuesday night. ($)
- Now we’ll see if they actually decide to do something about it.
In a statement, MLB lit up Justin Turner: "Turner’s decision to leave isolation and enter the field was wrong and put everyone he came in contact with at risk. When MLB Security raised the matter of being on the field with Turner, he emphatically refused to comply."— Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) October 28, 2020
- Tyler Kepner at The New York Times wonders if Kevin Cash’s decision to take Blake Snell out of the game will haunt the Rays for years to come.
- Our SB Nation brethren at DRaysBay gave their take on the Snell situation.
- For a team that spends a crazy amount of money, this is a wild statistic.
You want a stat: The Dodgers played 18 postseason games. Every one of them was started by a pitcher who has spent his entire professional career in the LA organization.— Evan Grant (@Evan_P_Grant) October 28, 2020
- Another interesting second baseman enters the free agent market.
The #STLCards declined Kolten Wong's $12.5 million option, costing them $1 million and making him a free agent.— Mark Saxon (@markasaxon) October 28, 2020
- Bill Shea at The Athletic checks in on Major League Baseball’s plans to market their stars. ($)
- J.J. Cooper at Baseball America reports that several minor league facilities are going to require a facelift if they’re to remain affiliates.
- This seems like a thing all schools should do. I have so many good snow day memories.
Absolutely LOVE this from our school district superintendent.— David Teicher (@Aerocles) October 27, 2020
Sure, we could do virtual classes on snow days now, but why would we take *another* thing away from the kids?
