Barry Bonds quietly reached out to Bryan Stow’s family following the Opening Day attack, pledging to help put Stow’s kids through college. Now he has a PSA with the Stow family in which he promotes the fund he’s created for that purpose. Some background here. Here’s the video:

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, 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.
