The M’s might have lost badly last night, but they’re certainly not the butt of the joke today.

Good morning all and welcome to Thursday! Here’s what’s going on today.

In Mariners news...

  • A couple of smart dudes were at the M’s game yesterday. Also major shout out to the signs behind Mr. Jennings and Mr. Holzhauer.

Around the league...

  • In the wake of the Yermín Mercedes drama, Alex Kirshner at FiveThirtyEight ranks the most disrespectful homers in MLB history.
  • Jeff Passan at ESPN analyzes the sticky substance story from every angle. ($)
  • This is probably going to be a common theme. Baseball didn’t make a stink about this in the past, so now players are pissed.
  • Why can’t we have nice things?
  • It’s official. The Diamondbacks have not won a road game since Madison Bumgarner’s seven-inning no-hitter on April 25.
  • Gerrit Cole expressed a desire to communicate openly with Major League Baseball regarding the foreign substance issue.
