In which a cat predicts the 2013 season


Marc Normandin of SB Nation has a cat. He used that cat to predict the 2013 division winners and the World Series champion.

That pretty much says it all.

The biggest takeaway: the cat picked the Royals to win the AL Central, just like Jon Paul Morosi did. Not gonna lie, though. I trust the cat’s methodology a bit more.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

3 Comments’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.
