Good morning everyone! The Mariners have their last off-day of the season today as we can spend the day simply hoping the Red Sox and Blue Jays lose. Until then, here are some links for the day.

In Mariners news...

  • Mitch Haniger is still trying to locate his 38th home run ball, which some fan has apparently run off with.

Around the league...

  • San Francisco Giants ballpark workers called off their strike after getting meaningful improvements to their compensation.
  • The West Virginia Power are no more.
  • Regardless of what happens next for the generational superstar, Shohei Ohtani has changed the way that we view baseball players, writes Tim Keown at ESPN.
  • Kalyn Kahler at Defector wrote about the story of one veteran MLB player who paid some of his teammates to get vaccinated.
  • What a massive mistake right when his team needs him most.
  • You don’t often see contract extensions signed in the final week of the regular season, but the Royals have agreed to a two-year deal with outfielder Michael A. Taylor.
  • This future Mariner had a power surge for the ages.
  • Tim Anderson may miss a few games at the beginning of next year if he can successfully delay the suspension.

Anders’ picks...

  • The NBA is taking the vaccination mandate very seriously. It will be interesting to see how MLB approaches this next spring.
