Because you don’t get enough of my opinions, last night I was on a podcast over at Diamondhoggers. We went on for around 45 minutes or so about how HBT works, the nature of blogging, obsessively checking the page view stats and why I don’t cut Fredi Gonzalez any slack.
Good times. At least if you aren’t sick of hearing me go on about whatever already.
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.
