Good morning everyone and welcome to the weekend! Here’s what’s happening in baseball.

In Mariners news...

  • In her latest blog post, Isabelle Minasian discussed the legacy of King Félix and the dark years he took us through.

Around the league...

  • Kevin Brown returned to the Orioles’ booth yesterday, but prior to that he posted a lengthy statement that attempted to assuage the feelings of people who are angry at O’s ownership. The statement sure reads like something the PR team drafted for him, but I guess we’ll never know.
  • The Rome Braves, the High-A affiliate of Atlanta, announced that they will be changing their team name for the 2024 season.
  • In a recent interview with Pop Verse, Shohei Ohtani discussed his favorite manga and anime.
  • That’s...almost unbelievable.
