It’s that time of year again, when most baseball offices close up shop until the new year.
We’ll be taking a blog break until January 4th unless the Mariners make any moves of note before then. As active as Jerry Dipoto has been, it seems likely he’ll do something during the holiday break. But if he doesn’t, we’re out until the first Monday in January.
Once the new year kicks in, we’ll start looking forward to spring training. The annual positional previews looking at which players going to Peoria might start the season in Tacoma will be a lot tougher to write this year, due to all of the new players. That will be the main blog project until spring training starts.
In the meantime, have a festive and safe holiday season. We’ll see you in January or whenever Dipoto pulls off another move – whichever comes first.
