This isn’t attached to any news item, but after watching the dramatic ending to last night’s Giants-Rockies game, I was happy to see that the Dodgers are coming to town for a three-game set starting tonight.
The Rockies were 15 and a half games behind L.A. at one point this season. They can catch the
Dodgers if they sweep the three-game set opening tonight in Denver.
What a wild year in the west.
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.
