Ian Desmond doesn’t believe in real estate agents

He believes in crowd-sourcing his in-season housing needs:

Hey Ian, I used to live at the Potomac Club at Braddock Station. That was about 20 minutes or so away via Metro. Of course I moved out nearly 15 years ago and the place may have gone downhill since then. Just trying to help.

You’re welcome!

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

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.
