Good morning everybody and happy Thursday! Let’s get you the latest from around baseball.

In Mariners news...

Around the league...

  • One of the biggest stories in baseball took place off the field yesterday. Lead Reds’ TV broadcaster Thom Brennaman said a homophobic slur on air during a hot mic moment. After apologizing mid-broadcast, Brennaman was taken off the air.
  • The Reds released their official statement on the matter, noting that they have suspended Brennaman until further notice.
  • Everyone’s gotta make it work somehow.
