In Mariners news...
- After emerging as the top candidate for the St. Louis Cardinals’ play-by-play job, Aaron Goldsmith has withdrawn his name from consideration in order to stay with the Mariners at ROOT Sports.
I was fortunate to grow up on St. Louis Cardinals baseball. It will always be extremely special to me. But after 10 years, I’ve found a new home. Seattle is where I’m supposed to be. And calling Mariners baseball is what I love to do. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.— Aaron Goldsmith (@heygoldy) January 24, 2023
