Good morning folks! We had a baseball-free day yesterday but the final ticket to the NLCS will be punched today when the Giants and Dodgers face off in Game 5. Until then, here’s what you need to know today.

In Mariners news...

  • The Mariners organization was on fire this year!
  • Zach DeLoach kicked off the Arizona Fall League with a bang.
  • Great news for PNW fans who want more access to their favorite teams.

Around the league...

  • Players in the independent Atlantic League aren’t totally thrilled that they’re being used as guinea pigs for potential rule changes in professional baseball. But several of them are still thankful the game is trying them out.
  • Kevin Long has landed a new gig.
  • The Cubs are on the verge of hiring Cleveland’s Carter Hawkins to be the organization’s new general manager, writes Brittany Ghiroli at The Athletic. ($)
  • Unsurprisingly, the Mariners were one of the biggest over-performers this year.
