Link Dump: Acquisitions, World Series and Choose Your Own Adventure


January is coming to a close, and with the Super Bowl on Sunday that can mean just one thing: baseball is in the air. With just a few weeks left until pitchers and catchers report to their respective facilities, each team still thinks that they have a shot. That all said, its been a slow few days for baseball with Deflategate taking all of the headlines of late.

So what would a site cover? Why try and create news when you can have a little bit of fun for a couple more weeks? Co-editor at Swingin’ A’s, Tony Frye, put together a story for A’s fans. But this isn’t just any story. It’s a choose your own adventure!

Shots have been fired over at Sodo Mojo. Staff writer Charlie Spencer-Davis asks if the Mariner’s trio of Robinson Cano, Nelson Cruz and Kyle Seager are the best threesome in baseball. I think that George Springer, Chris Carter and Jose Altuve may have something to say about that.
