It’s eight years late, but the Cardinals are ready to unveil Ballpark Village — a new entertainment district adjacent to Busch Stadium with bars, stages, “rooftop” seating, a team Hall of Fame, and more.

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.
