Good morning everyone! Let’s get to the latest from around baseball.

In Mariners news...

Around the league...

  • What a wild image of two former Mariners.
  • Kiley McDaniel at ESPN ranks the top 10 aces in baseball. ($)
  • J.P. Hoornstra wrote about what has turned into a legendary draft class for the Dodgers in 2016.
  • As two of the longest-running executives in professional sports, Billy Beane and Brian Cashman have turned into unlikely friends. Ben Lindbergh at The Ringer has the story.
  • Amazing that this guy was a Rule 5 pick this winter.
  • The Blue Jays will be without one of their best hitters for a little bit.
  • Yu Chang tweeted about racist messages he received for making a mistake in a recent game, raising awareness of the kind of treatment Asian players still get in this game.

Anders’ picks...

  • Please consider donating to this GoFundMe, which aims to pay for the funeral of the friend of Angie Mentink’s son. The young boy deserves a proper memorial.
