New, 31 comments

The M’s quietly made a trade on their day off.

New York Knicks v Seattle SuperSonics

Hello everyone! We’ve made it to Friday! The M’s will be back in action today after taking tomorrow off, so let’s get you all caught up on what you need to know from the baseball world.

In Mariners news...

  • Best wishes to Marco and Monica Gonzales, who are imminently expecting the birth of their first child, with Marco back in Seattle at the moment.
  • The Mariners will play a doubleheader today, weather permitting, resuming Saturday’s game in the bottom of the third inning at 11:10 AM PST and playing a full nine, followed by just seven innings in game two.
  • Congratulations to the Dominican Republic, which defeated Venezuela 8-5 yesterday to secure a spot in the Summer Olympics in Tokyo! Julio Rodríguez will join the club once more at that time, and starred with his bat throughout the qualifiers, as well as with the glove yesterday.

Around the league...

  • Atlanta Braves righty Mike Soroka can’t catch a break, and has unfortunately retorn his Achilles tendon, and will be out for another 12 months.

John’s Picks...

  • The Crawsover is back! With the Storm off to a magnificent 12-3 start and the NBA playoffs approaching their crescendo, it’s a good time to be a multi-sport fan in Seattle. The Crawsover, for the uninitiated, is a Pro-Am summer/offseason basketball league organized by Seattle hoops legend, Rainier Beach HS alum, and 20-year NBA stalwart Jamal Crawford. Despite the departure of the SuperSonics, the Pro-Am (the league’s rosters are a mixture of professionals and amateurs) has been an integral part of the rich hoops history of the PNW. Games will be at Seattle Pacific University.
  • It’s, uh, a hot one
