Hello folks and happy Thursday! We’re officially a week out from MLB Opening Day! Let’s get to some links.

In Mariners news...

  • Please let this be a breakout year for him.
  • The Mariners have announced that T-Mobile Park is sold out for Opening Day.

Around the league...

  • Jared Diamond at The Wall Street Journal wrote about Eddie Robinson, the oldest living former MLB player, and how he made up for not going to a game in 2020 (the first season he hadn’t done so for in over half a century) by heading down to spring training in 2021.
  • The Tigers made a couple of major roster decisions, impacting the future of a former Mariner.
  • I guess Trevor Bauer signed his extension at the right time for him.
  • I think this is getting out of hand.
  • The Astros have agreed to a five-year extension with Lance McCullers, Jr.
  • But it looks like another Houston star turned down a similar offer.
  • Meanwhile, it’s going to be a little bit before we see Khris Davis in Ranger Blue.
  • The White Sox are favored to sign one of the best international free agents out there.

Anders’ picks...

  • This headline combined with this image might be the funniest thing I’ve seen all week.
  • It’s time for you to learn about Caitlin Clark, an Iowa freshman basketball player who might just be the next great athlete in the sport.
