In Mariners news...

  • On its face, this caption is pretty innocuous, but I spent all day imagining what a Shadow Kirby would be capable of, and I’m truly terrified of what my brain came up with. Thank all the powers that be that that little pink ball uses his powers for good or society would be so screwed.
  • Sure you may see a homerun, but all I see is a baseball turned into dust. We are not the same.

Around the league...

  • Happy Bobby Bonilla Day!
  • One Mariners legend joins another!
  • Framber Valdez hopes that a sprained ankle won’t keep him out for more than one start.
  • The MLBPA has expanded its executive board, from 38 members to 72, making room for 34 minor league representatives.
  • One of Seattle’s sons is coming home next week, and I for one can’t wait to host him.
  • Sometimes the score is unimportant. Just ask the Pirates.
  • Only respect for someone who is willing to commit to a bit, no matter the cost.
