Good morning everybody! While many of you are likely taking the day off today, we’ve got a light dose of links for you.
In Mariners news...
- Marcus Stroman continued to tease Mariners fans on Twitter yesterday with this response to J.P. Crawford. It’s worth a reminder that Stroman’s comment isn’t an indicator that he’s just begging Jerry Dipoto to offer him a deal, but merely a statement that he’d sign with Seattle if they offered the right contract, which is true of every free agent.
I agree with the both of y’all. I’m open. For real! I guess we’ll see if your front office is on the same page. Happy Thanksgiving to both of y’all and your families. Sending you all the blessings!— Marcus Stroman (@STR0) November 25, 2021
