3 Prospectus Feature: Ichiro!'s Exclamation Point by Aaron Gleeman
A narrative poem about a diminuitive hero of the past, a polemic against the laziness of polemics, and a piece that reveals too much about one author's financial status.
A pre-emptive strike against the renaming of things, thoughts on semicolon baseball, and a scouting report on people scouting.

They're Tired of This Guy.
As one grows older, it becomes a habit to search for baseball players who fasten themselves like tent stakes into the past.
, my favorite player as a boy, was still around stealing bases and hunting for jobs when I was out of college, hunting for jobs. Rickey Henderson held out as the last active member of Roger Clemens for Nintendo, 20 years after its release. Baseball RBI remains the last link of Major League Baseball to the city of Montreal. These players serve as a connective tissue between generations and eras, keeping one fastened to youth for just a little longer. Bartolo Colon

Our hero's story continues in Seattle (or maybe Tacoma). What does it mean to have your number retired, but only briefly? And who's really Mr. Mariner?
Recently it was announced that no Seattle Mariner would again wear the number 11 on the field of play. Following a dramatic upswing in support from Hall of Fame voters, the ceremony for
(scheduled for August 12) takes on the spirit of a hopeful preamble, a chance to honor the team’s popular hitting coach at home before sending him off to Cooperstown. This is as it should be. Baseball is built for celebration and appreciation, birthday parties and harvest festivals. It is built to mark time. There’s only one strange aspect to retiring Edgar’s number: basically, it already was. No one had worn it since his retirement in 2004. Edgar Martinez

It’s late. Outside my window, across the valley, porch lights twinkle; behind me, my wife watches a documentary about German expatriates in the Galapagos. There is, yet again, no baseball. I have spent half an hour reading poetry I wrote in college. I should be writing about the Hall of Fame. I do not want to write about the Hall of Fame. I want to write about
. Stan Javier
Sometimes we are deep and sometimes we are not deep, and sometimes we just want to feel deep, that warm comfortable blanket of wisdom in seeing something and understanding it, having words for it. This is one of those times and I am sorry. I am sorry that I have chosen this, if in fact I have.

Is there an inefficiency to be exploited by taking so-so center fielders and playing them in a corner?
The Mariners have added
and Jarrod Dyson to their outfield this offseason and they already had Mitch Haniger . The Rays traded Leonys Martin for a group of prospects, which they insisted (to at least some extent) include Drew Smyly , and they already had Mallex Smith . I think the Mariners and Rays made these trades because they thought high-end corner outfield defense was undervalued. Kevin Kiermaier

Jerry Dipoto refuses to stop making trades, this time roping the Braves and Rays into his addiction.
The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe.
Seattle picks up Yovani Gallardo and Jarrod Dyson, Baltimore adds Seth Smith, and Kansas City brings in Nate Karns. Do the Mariners have one last push in them before the inevitable rebuild arrives?
It almost worked. Last offseason incoming Mariners general manager
took over an aging roster full of heavy contracts and busted prospects, applied a slathering of industrial-grade spackle, and nearly assembled a playoff team. An instant teardown would have been acceptable, if not welcomed; certainly, Mariners fans had been through more than one. But the idea was that the team’s core of Jerry Dipoto , Felix Hernandez , Kyle Seager , and Nelson Cruz was worth a shot. The Salts won 86 games and fell a weekend short of the postseason for the second time in three years. Robinson Cano
