Mariners Moose Tracks, 12/20/20: Vibin’ With JROD, John Daly, and Lianne La Havas

Aww, you guys made me link!

On this, the second to last Sunday of 2020, let us all come together for a morning of going hogwild on the internet. There are simply way too many things to click and consume for me to engage in any self-reflection about things that have happened this year. The San Francisco Giants signed a starting pitcher and you’re telling me to spread holiday cheer to those who need it most?!?! I will never do that.

In Mariners News...

  • Julio Rodríguez welcomed Kaden Polcovich, the team’s third-round pick in the 2020 draft, to his YouTube show.
  • Marco Gonzales was less than pleased with the league’s eastern bent in picking Sunday Night Baseball matchups.
  • Show yourself, jackhole.

Around the League...

  • It’s encouraging to see MLB market one of its star’s vivacious personalities like this, especially in their native language.
  • Earlier this week there was news that the Nationals were peering over Cincinnati’s fence and imagining what Eugenio Suárez would look like in their yard. Now reports have emerged that Washington is also interested in free agent J.T. Realmuto.
  • The Giants have added Anthony DeSclafani, who put up a 3.89 ERA and 2.4 fWAR the last time we played a full season.
  • Keith McPherson is a fan of the Yankees (a famously rich baseball company). He put out a rap imploring the team (who famously loves to spend money) to pay DJ LeMahieu (famously their best player for the last two seasons). What a concept.

Matthew’s Picks...

  • Look at God.
  • This cover of Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes” by Lianne La Havas somehow both puts me at ease and makes me physically enlivened.
