There’s more win in this video of Bill “Spaceman” Lee shooting ten free throws and talking b.s. about basketball and the baseball bats he makes than there is any right to be.
And the “ten from the line” theme song is second only to the theme to Jonah Keri’s podcast in terms of pure awesomeness. Enjoy:

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.
