Around the Blogosphere

We’ll kick off another week with author Harrison Crow of SoDo Mojo, who writes about the suggestion that Jack Wilson might be the team’s second baseman. Crow says he’d rather see that job given to Adam Kennedy, but also brings up the whole July trade deadline thing and how that could play into any Mariners thinking on Wilson.


Taylor Halperin of ProBall NW writes about why Mariners fans should be getting very excited about Josh Lueke.
Moving along, Matthew over at Lookout Landing says he’s tired of Phoenix as a spring training destination. I hear you, Matthew. Thing is, as he points out, Florida isn’t exactly a riveting spot either. He asks readers what their preferred destination would be. Remember, you have to have sort of “guaranteed” warm weather, preferably of the dry kind rather than humid. You also have to have big retirement and snowbird communities that would support a bunch of teams that play back home. Nightlife? As is the case in Phoenix, that’s tough to come by if you’re aiming for the first two things. For me, Las Vegas sounds great. But it would be awfully tough for anyone to be 100 percent focused on work — players or media — in a place like that. Not sure baseball would go for it.
And finally, over at Prospect Insider, Joe Kaiser has an item from a few days ago in which he suggests Seattle is no longer a baseball town. Seirously, have a look at it. Can’t say I disagree with a lot of his points.
