FanPost Friday: Spring Training HOT TAKES

The most foolish and devilish of all hot takes (plus polls!)

Welcome back to FanPost Friday! Sorry that it’s been a few weeks, but we’ve been so chock-full of fresh content from our new writers recently that I bet you didn’t even notice! Plus, hey, real practice baseball has been taking up everyone’s attention and that’s what we’re here to talk about today.

But first, I’d like to give a shoutout to all the debut pieces from our new staff writers so far, just in case you missed any of them. They are all worth your time.

We are truly spoiled with writing talent and fresh enthusiasm these days at LL and the timing could not be better for what should be a very fun and exciting season of Mariners baseball.
