Mariners Moose Tracks, 12/3/23: Félix Hernández, Corbin Burnes, and Matt Holliday

It’s Sunday, and if it’s Sunday, it’s Meet the Links.

National League Wild Card Game: Colorado Rockies v. Chicago Cubs

In Mariners news...

  • So many of us remember exactly where we were on August 15, 2012. As it happens, Félix remembers a little more than that.
  • Ryan Divish published what he expects the Mariners to do at the upcoming Winter Meetings. The answer won’t surprise you.
  • The Mariners social team is still out on the Lou Piniella campaign tour, with one last reminder that he belongs in Cooperstown before the Era Committee votes today.

Around the league...

  • Seems awfully coincidental that the Holliday family does a homerun derby around the holidays. They are at the height of their power. The baseball world gets down on it’s knees and thanks God every time they remember the baseball season ends before Thanksgiving, otherwise Matt might have had 1,000 career homeruns.
  • Fact: The San Diego Padres are trying to offload payroll and acquire new, young talent.

Fact: The San Diego Padres have a massive hole at starting pitcher.

Fact: The San Diego Padres intend to be a playoff contender in 2024.

Fact(?): The San Diego Padres are interested in trading for Corbin Burnes.

  • Joe Kelly and the Dodgers have agreed to terms on a one-year contract, pending a physical. Money is unknown at this point.
  • The Atlanta Braves signed outfielder and former Mariners prospect Luis Liberato to a minor league deal.
  • We’re back with another addition of “Child of MLB Legend Can Rake!” On today’s edition, Jadyn Fielder!

Nick’s pick...

  • Alternate headline: “Cedar Rapids indoor golf simulator forced to shutter it’s doors and declare bankruptcy due to oversight with free beer promotion. More at 11.”
