While baseball is on pause, some people find ways to deliver happiness to those in need.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning folks and happy Tuesday! I hope you’re all continuing to stay safe and finding ways to keep yourself sane during these trying times. Keeping up your routines is important, like your daily perusing of the links for instance! Let’s get to it.

In Mariners news...

  • If you’re like Kristopher Negron, it’s time for some experimental hobbies — like cooking.

Around the league...

  • Kyle Glaser at Baseball America lists 15 players who were really impressing in spring training before things got shut down.
  • Well, I suppose it’s time to turn our heads toward the upcoming MLB Draft. Keith Law at The Athletic writes up his top 30 list of prospects heading into the draft. ($) A good number of these players have already been covered in-depth by Kate, Joe, and the rest of the staff with profiles here, and now is as good a time as any to catch up on that reading.
  • Ken Rosenthal provides some updates on how the league will proceed in these current conditions.
  • Well, the “optimistic” timeline for the start of the season keeps getting pushed back. That said, who knows what things will look like when we get there — assuming we continue to follow all necessary precautions.
  • And due to the latest CDC guidelines, the season can’t possibly start before mid-May, with a possibility that the first several games could be played in front of no fans.

Anders’ picks...

  • What else are sports fans supposed to do during these trying times?
  • To all of you football fans out there, Tom Brady made a huge announcement early this morning by declaring he will not be returning to New England. This period in sports simply cannot get weird enough.
  • My childhood senses are tingling.
  • Working from home and need a way to keep yourself mentally sane? Spencer Hall at Banner Society has a guide for you.
