The Mets pitching staff would be the hardest of those three for Dice-K to crack, but if he truly wants to remain in the states he’ll take one of these. If what he truly wants is to pitch at the highest level, however, I’m guessing a Japanese team would be willing to give him a shot, as rumored.

The Mariners unveiled a statue of Hall of Fame outfielder Ken Griffey, Jr. earlier this year at Safeco Field, featuring the slugger in his famous follow-through seen after each of his 630 career home runs. Chris Daniels of KING 5 News in Seattle reported on Tuesday evening that someone had stolen the bat from the statue.

Thankfully, the Seattle Police Department announced that the bat has been recovered and a suspect has been arrested. They expect to provide more details later. Daniels reports the Mariners have confirmed the news.

My fellow Americans, our long national nightmare is over.
