In Lookout Landing Land...
- Feast your eyes on the Best of Lookout Landing Twitter for this past week:
Outside of the Mariners, my playoff rooting interests are “things that will cause Rob Manfred prolonged intestinal distress”— Lookout Landing (@LookoutLanding) September 4, 2022
Scott Servais apparently uses Luis Castillo's nickname, La Piedra, on the lineup card pic.twitter.com/KNDRePKgTU— Lookout Landing (@LookoutLanding) September 3, 2022
Matt Boyd on being embraced by his teammates: "Everybody knows that this is a special group; you don't understand how special it is until you're in the clubhouse...I'm truly thankful for that [the support he's gotten in such a short time], it speaks to the character of everybody"— Lookout Landing (@LookoutLanding) September 1, 2022
This Mariners bullpen against the 2022 Tigers is close to a violation of the Geneva Convention— Lookout Landing (@LookoutLanding) September 1, 2022
In Mariners Land...
- J.P. Crawford posted on Instagram for the first time since May to show off his brand new Seattle Mariners FOCO straw hat. I don’t have a FOCO, but after going to a Padres game in San Diego this past Spring I purchased a Hemlock straw hat that’s very similar and I have to say — these hats are clutch. Perfect for dad vibes.
- Jesse Winker is incapable of losing when he has a life like this.
- Can someone get eyes on what pen Julio is using?
- Wink makes our list again, this time for swiping a fan’s cell phone this week in Cleveland. My only suggestion would’ve been to take a selfie with the fan. You can’t just give a teenager a heart attack by taking their phone like that without giving them something.
- The squad threw on different kinds of threads this week to represent their favorite NFL team. The clear winner here? Scott.
In Baseball Land...
- ALERT: Washington kid makes the big time! Graduate of Lakeside High School and current No. 3 prospect in all of baseball, Corbin Carroll, debuted this week for the Snakies. Woo!
- What’s better than one Washington kid making the Majors this past week? How about TWO Washington kids making the Majors this week?? Michael Toglia, a Gig Harbor High School Class of 2016 alum hit the field this week for the Colorado Rockies. Way to go!
- This week the guys from Proud to Be in Baseball traveled to my neck of the woods to celebrate Pride Night at Polar Park with Boston’s Triple-A team, the WooSox. Proud to be in Baseball is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower and advocate for the next generation of LGBTQ people in baseball. A player-driven organization, leading with messages of love and acceptance, Proud to be in Baseball provides resources, educational opportunities, and raises awareness while building the LGBTQ community in America’s pastime.

- Okay, but who else can relate.
