Brrrrrr! I don’t know what things are like where you are, but here in Seattle it feels like we catapulted from early fall into deep winter like, overnight. I had to scrape actual ice off my car and let it warm up forever when leaving a friend’s house the other day. Pour yourself the hot beverage of your choice and cozy up to these links:

In Mariners news:

  • The Mariners eked out a win over the Royals in fall development play. Taylor Trammell keeps hitting, and Sam Carlson and Connor Phillips racked up the strikeouts.

If you’re wondering why there’s no Julio Rodríguez listed in the box scores these days, it’s because he’s already left to go join the Leones del Escogido to play winter ball in the Dominican Republic. He’ll join fellow Mariner Luis Liberato, who had a game-winning single in a pre-season game the other day. Top prospect Wander Franco will also be with Escogido for a while, making them one of the must-watch teams in LIDOM this year.
