Hey folks! Believe it or not, we’re less than a month away from spring training games starting (in theory). You may not realize it yet because the league has made absolutely no decisions on either rules or on whether or not they’ll play 162 games in the middle of a pandemic. However, teams are still signing and trading like there’s going to be a season. So let’s get to the latest from around the sport.

In Mariners news...

  • Julio is ready for the season to start.
  • Ryan Divish at The Seattle Times spoke to the other top outfield prospect, Jarred Kelenic, about his expectations going into 2021.

Around the league...

  • Ryan Fagan at Sporting News suggested that BBWAA remove J.G. Taylor Spink’s name from the award that is currently named after him.
  • A Seattle-area prospect is making some noise.

Anders’ picks...

  • Major League Baseball isn’t the only American sports league dealing with labor strife. The Athletic reports that Major League Soccer is also headed to a potential work stoppage. ($)
