Who wants some?

As mentioned a few weeks ago, I participate in a fantasy contest over at ESPN, named Baseball Challenge.
The game gets broken up into first- and second-half segments, so if you
want to join in the fun, I’ve created a public group called “Circling
the Bases.” You can join the group anytime, but if you aren’t signed up
for the game, you’ll want to do so tonight or risk quickly falling
behind. It’s a daily-change game*, so unless you have 15 minutes or so
to burn every night, don’t bother.

(There is a weekly version of the game. For sissies. Yeah, I said it.)

Of course, you’ll have your work cut out for you if you want to beat
the first-half champion and only two-time winner of the contest. But
second-place bragging rights will be up for grabs, at least.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
