My latest Wall Street Journal article is up, dealing with the strange season Adrian Gonzalez is having in San Diego. I haven’t linked to these that much lately, but I’m doing three or four per month over there, and “The Count” is also authored by guys like Tim Marchman and Jonah Keri, so you should check it out regularly.
Erik Bedard was on with Brock and Salk yesterday and said he likes Seattle. That’s nice. There’s still about a 0.1% chance he re-signs here this winter.
The Tacoma Rainiers play down in Cheney tonight, with Ryan Rowland-Smith getting his final rehab start. If you don’t want to drive to Tacoma, you can watch it on TV. The Rainiers announced a television deal with Comcast Sports that will allow them to air 15 games this season, including tonight’s contest. The always awesome Mike Curto will be doing the play by play.
Also, we’re getting really close to announcing the details of our next USSM event in Seattle. As previously mentioned, it will be Saturday, August 8th, and we’re doing it at Safeco before the Mariners-Rays game that evening. We’ll roll out all the details shortly, but keep the date free. You’re going to want to make this one.
