Hello everyone and happy Thursday! We’re coming off what is likely to be one of the busier days of the lockout with the MiLB Rule 5 Draft taking place yesterday. Let’s get to all of that and more.

In Mariners news...

  • At this point we might as well just call this segment “Noelvi Marte news.”

Around the league...

  • Good to see someone out there giving Ty France some love.
  • The Athletic Staff interviewed representatives from MLB and the MLBPA about whether the scrubbing of player likenesses from the league’s webpages was literal law or merely a part of the bargaining process. ($)
  • Yasiel Puig is indeed returning to pro baseball, just not in America. I’m guessing that he’s going to absolutely dominate the KBO.

Anders’ picks...

  • Our own Michael Ajeto tweeted this out yesterday, reminding me of the joys that Mariners commercials bring me. I seriously hope the team manages to bring them back in 2022. This one in particular is a gem from start to finish.
