Saturday choc full o linx.

Friday news dumps everywhere means chunky Saturday morning links, and tech issues mean links slightly later than usual. Welcome and enjoy before today’s 4:10 game today!

In Mariners News...

  • Yesterday’s mollywhopping by the Astros was the result of a series of issues, starting with Yusei Kikuchi’s start-scratching neck spasms. Kikuchi may be able to start again soon, but it’s unclear if he’ll slide in the rotation soon or wait until his next scheduled turn.
  • Nestor Cortes got the start, pitching quite poorly, and later reporting some tricep soreness.
  • Dave Sims remains a gem, giving a good-spirited breakdown on Cameo of his infamous “Hey Lloyd, get the truck, to the airport” call for the Mariner Muse.

Around The League...

  • The Rangers made a flurry of moves, including retrieving an old friend and freeing an avian.

John’s pick...

  • Phillies outfielder Roman Quinn got the last laugh as the winning run on a walkoff Bryce Harper single last night, but things weren’t looking so peachy earlier.
