In Mariners news...

  • Following his well-publicized and mocked early offseason faux paus, Jerry Dipoto is being more tight-lipped when asked about Shohei Ohtani. Dipoto does note that the Mariners’ decision not to offer Teoscar Hernández the qualifying offer stemmed from a desire to cut back on strikeouts.
  • Dipoto also noted that Stephen Vogt would have seen an increased role had he not been hired away by the Cleveland Guardians.
  • The Mariners’ winner of the 2023 Katy Feeney Leadership Award has been named.

Around the league...

  • The Innings Festival has been announced for late February in Tempe, AZ. Featured on the bill are well-known acts like the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Hozier, and... Andre Ethier?
  • The Angels (bad) hiring Ron Washington (good) would certainly cause me some cognitive dissonance.
