Farewell, January, we hardly knew ye. Just kidding, January felt like the very longest month. At least we had the Mariners’ two-week social media extravaganza to tide us over, and with the beginning of February just on the horizon, I am happy to remind you that—fingers crossed—this was the last month without baseball for quite some time. February 27th, hurry (safely) here!

With Spring Training getting closer, we’ve brought on some extra help for the upcoming season—new writer Addie made her debut on Friday, so make sure to check that out if you haven’t. You can follow Addie on Twitter at @gomsaddie. Also in site news: Amanda was nominated for a SABR award for her series on pandemic baseball in Seattle in 1918! You can send Amanda your congratulations in the comments or on Twitter, and read her nominated piece here if you haven’t.

Kate’s pick:

A snowy owl appeared in NYC’s Central Park on Saturday for the first time in over a century and I love the ATTITUDE of this bird. Just look at it. Iconic. Regal. I aspire to be as unbothered as a snowy owl showing up for the first time in over a century to an adoring public and being this level of blasé about the proceedings. And the owl was hanging out on a baseball diamond, so we know the taste level is impeccable.
