6/20: Dave Niehaus’ son catches foul ball on Father’s Day

Jun 20, 2011, 10:30 AM

-Owen Lei of KING 5 News has a story about Andy Niehaus, the son of late M’s broadcaster Dave Niehaus, catching a foul ball on Father’s Day.

–Geoff Baker of The Seattle Times writes that SS Brendan Ryan and CF Franklin Gutierrez lead the club in UZR (Ultimate Zone Rating), a defensive metric. The UZR scores say Ichiro is struggling mightily in right field.

–This was from yesterday, but Jerry Brewer’s Father’s Day column is worth a read. He writes about Mariners catcher Miguel Olivo, who considers himself the grandfather of his stepdaughter’s 5-month-old daughter, Malia.

–Dave Cameron of USSMariner.com proposes a few options for improving the Mariners’ holes at LF and DH.

Here’s video on ESPN.com of an interview with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.

–Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean catches up with Titans running back Chris Johnson, who says he’s willing to take on more carries to help take some of the pressure off rookie quarterback Jake Locker. Sounds like Johnson expects Locker to be the Titans’ starter.
