Good morning everybody! Here’s what’s happening around baseball on this Wednesday as the M’s try to secure the series victory against the A’s.

In Mariners news...

  • They’ve got to bring him back to give him a shot at the postseason.
  • Greg Bishop at Sports Illustrated spoke to Jerry Dipoto for a story about the M’s rebuild and how this time may be different from previous attempts to build a winning team.

Around the league...

  • The Cardinals went from a forgotten squad to a likely postseason team.
  • Ken Rosenthal at The Athletic opines that this year’s muddled playoff picture is an argument against expanding the number of postseason teams permanently. ($)
  • Remember former big leaguer Lew Ford? The 45-year-old outfielder has been spending the last decade hanging out on Long Island with an Atlantic League squad.
  • Carlos Collazo at Baseball America highlights a baker’s dozen of players who have gotten off to hot starts since being drafted this season. Both Collin Davis and Corey Rosier are mentioned. ($)
  • The Padres are shaking things up in the middle of a disappointing campaign.
