Happy day-after-Boxing-Day to you and yours. The day after Christmas is always takeout day in my house, and last night I enjoyed a Bridge Box from West Seattle’s The Bridge—an “adult Happy Meal,” $11 gets you a slider, a bag of fries, a shot of booze (!), and a toy surprise. Pair that with an order of their cheese curds (served with the sweet heat of strawberry-jalapeño jam) and that’s a nice, if not necessarily healthy, meal. And let me just say that teeny-tiny jar of play-dough, while maybe a gimmicky throw-in, actually brought me a lot of delight. Dear restaurateurs of Seattle: more toy surprises in meals, please. On to the toy surprise that is today’s links!

In Mariners news:

  • Anthony Castrovince of MLB matchmakered up some free agent matches to teams. He sent the Mariners Marcell Ozuna which...I actually really like as an idea. Look for an article from John early this week with a deeper dive on Ozuna to the Mariners, and look for me hovering around annoyingly singing “O-zu-na” like the reggaeton singer.
  • Blake Snell might not be a Mariner anytime soon, but if you or someone you know is interested, he’s hosting a hitting camp for youth this January in Shoreline with the Nationals’ hitting coach Kevin Long.
  • Former Mariner Robinson Canó will join the Estrellas Orientales in LIDOM play, as will Fernando Tatís Jr., Padres star and my favorite player, non-Mariners division (or actually, all division. Sorry, current Mariners.). Héctor Gómez has some footage of Canó taking BP where you can see Tatís stepping into the box after him and mercy, that’s quite a 1-2 punch.

Around the league:

Kate’s pick:

As we limp into the end of 2020, I’m pretty mad that no one came up with this idea earlier in the year: the hotline for screaming. Just call the number, wait for the beep, scream your screamiest scream, and hang up. It’s like scream therapy, but for free! They also collect and upload the screams so you can listen to the agony of total strangers, if that’s cathartic for you.
