I’m posting the links this morning as Salk is still in Vegas. Hopefully he’s back tomorrow, assuming he doesn’t bet his filght home at the black jack table tonight…

Filling in for Mike on the show today is King 5 TV’s Chris Egan. That’s right, I’m going to be flanked by Puyallup boys for the whole 4 hours. Yikes.

M’s starter Doug Fister looked good again and the Mariners used some clutch hitting to beat the Yankees 10-3.

Dave Cameron looks at how Fister can be effective with only a good changeup.

Jeff Sullivan points to the list of batters that have swung and missed at a Fister pitch and sees nothing but quality.

Art Thiel could not have picked a better time for Fister to emerge with two great starts.

You won’t see Don Wakamatsu kick dirt on an umpire’s shoe, it’s just not how he is.

Tom Wyrwich points out that the Mariners have tied their win total from last year.

Jay Yenich takes a look at the Minor Leagues and likes what he has seen from Matt Tuiasosopo and Brandon Morrow.

High school shortstop Nick Franklin, the Mariners’ 27th pick, has agreed to a contract. He toured Safeco Field yesterday.

Erik Bedard said he is interested in staying with the Mariners.

Here’s a good look inside the Seahawk locker room and on the sideline.

Doug Farrar highlights the differences between this year and last year on offense and defense.

Aaron Curry was inconsistent on Saturday, providing only 2 tackles, but at times he did show that he can be dynamic.

Dave Boling liked what he saw from the new Seahawks, especially Cory Redding and Max Unger.

Nick Reed is undersized but he is putting pressure on the coaching staff give him a roster spot.

T.J. Houshmandzadeh never got his degree from Oregon State, he doesn’t want UW players to repeat his mistake.

John Morgan has 5 observations from the Seahawks game on Saturday. And gives his winners and losers from the Chargers game.

According to Michael Lombardi, the Seahawks haave been talking about adding another running back to the team.

Tiger Woods had trouble putting on Sunday, Y.E. Yang played nearly flawless.

Usain Bolt is really, really fast.

-Mercer Island is dominating the Little League World Series. They had 10-runned 5 teams in a row before advancing to Williamsport on Saturday.
