Hello folks and happy Friday! The Mariners are in first place in the American League West and take on a fellow AL West team for the first time this season tonight. Let’s get to some of the latest from around baseball.

In Mariners news...

  • In case you missed it, things are looking good for our other friend Kyle!
  • Several Mariners players weigh in here.

Around the league...

  • You’ve got to love the KBO for stuff like this.
  • The Beloit Snappers minor league team are putting together a clever system in which fans can bid for the right to have the ballpark named after them for a day.
  • Minor League Baseball is no longer allowing managers to challenge the official scorers’ rulings after games. As someone who often had to serve as the liaison between the scorer and the managers in these situations, I’m very glad to see this contentious, awkward, and morally questionable practice go by the wayside.
  • The Blue Jays — for whom their bullpen was meant to prop up a weak starting rotation — cannot catch a break when it comes to reliever health.
