Hello everybody! The M’s are off today following their series win against the Astros. Here’s what’s going on around baseball in the meantime.

In Mariners news...

  • In case you were wondering just how special that Abraham Toro grand slam was on Tuesday...
  • The Prospects Live staff dropped their latest list of the Mariners’ top 30 prospects.

Around the league...

  • Bryce Harper has been the forgotten man in the MVP conversation this season, writes Jared Diamond at The Wall Street Journal.
  • Hagerstown, previously the host city for the Nationals’ Single-A club, will be joining the independent Atlantic League soon.
  • Former Mariner alert!
  • Good to see that the Nationals aren’t messing around.
  • The Mets are dealing with yet another public relations firestorm after it was reported that General Manager Zack Scott is facing charges for driving under the influence.
  • Jay Jaffe at Fangraphs takes a look at the players who, this season, have most helped their cases at one day becoming Hall of Famers (Halls of Famer?).

Anders’ picks...

  • We don’t normally drop NBA news in here, but this seems like it could have major ramifications for athletes everywhere.
