The front page of this post from Business Insider has the basics of the McCourt divorce, most of which we’ve covered here already. But if you’re really, really going to follow this thing like a hardcore fan, you have to click the slide show down at the bottom of the page.
Or you can ignore it all and wait for the baseball games to start. Your call.
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.
