One of these days I’ll be able to spell LeMahieu’s name without looking it up.

MLB: New York Mets at Philadelphia Phillies Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning everyone! Let’s get this Thursday started with some links.

In Mariners news...

  • Don’t sleep on George Kirby!

Around the league...

  • Robbie noooooooooo.
  • Ken Rosenthal at The Athletic argues that Canó’s Hall of Fame case is essentially dead after this most recent suspension. ($)
  • The Mariners have certainly had a few successes by doing this!
  • Jay Jaffe at Fangraphs took a look at Omar Vizquel’s case for Cooperstown.
  • Darragh McDonald at Fangraphs pitches a fun new rule to the game of baseball.
  • Cleveland GM Mike Chernoff has emerged as a frontrunner in the Mets’ search. Presumably this means that Theo Epstein is holding true to his word about sitting this year out.
  • Five years seems pretty rich for a 32-year-old. We’ll see who is willing to pay it, or if anyone is.
