Good morning folks! Let’s get to today’s news.

In Mariners news...

Around the league...

  • Baseball Prospectus looks at how institutional racism affected baseball scouting.
  • Matt Harvey could re-remerge overseas.
  • Oh no.
  • Not entirely sure what it means to attend It remotely. Perhaps they’ll be readily available for interview once they’ve been selected?
  • The Athletic announced that it laid off 8% of its staff in response to COVID-19-related financial issues.
  • I miss that swing.
  • Travis Sawchik at FiveThirtyEight breaks down the actual earnings of the average player.
  • The most prestigious local summer ball league called off the season. This comes as no surprise, given that nearly half of its teams had individually canceled their seasons weeks prior to this announcement.
  • This could put the A’s at a major competitive disadvantage going forward.
  • Actually, scratch that.

Anders’ picks...

  • Not a lot of things cooler than a video of lightning.
  • That is...a lot of money.
