Good morning everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your holiday, or your Thursday, depending on where you are. Some of you may be shopping today. I will not be. All of you should read the links.
In Mariners news...
- Shannon Drayer caught up with right-hander Sam Carlson, who has been all but forgotten by even those who closely follow the M’s farm system.
Around the league...
- Randy Arozarena has been released from custody after his former partner declined to press charges against the Rays outfielder.
- Another demonstration that Major League Baseball has all of the bargaining power in the ongoing negotiations. Fresno formerly hosted a Triple-A team.
This was expected, but is notable. In accepting a move to low Class A, the Fresno team and the city would also have to "release any legal claims." In other words, they must agree not to sue to be in affiliated ball. https://t.co/3WicrJ1jhv— JJ Cooper (@jjcoop36) November 27, 2020
- If you find yourself hankering for some baseball this offseason, the Australian League’s Melbourne Aces have announced that all of their games will be streamed online this season.
