Past, present, and future: Can Jean Segura be the best M’s shortstop since A-Rod?

There are just certain positions that some teams struggle to fill. The Mariners’ struggles to find a competent starting catcher since the retirement of Dan Wilson has already been covered here.

Dempsey plays first half of Sounders’ scrimmage loss

TUCSON, Ariz. — Sounders forward Clint Dempsey took another step towards being able to compete during the regular season, playing the entire first half of his team’s 1-0 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes in a scrimmage in Tucson, Ariz. on Tuesday. Dempsey played just 30 minutes of his team’s pre-season opener on Saturday, so the additional 15 minutes was a positive step. Still, he was kept off the field in the second half as the Sounders continue to ease him slowly back into games.

Rangers bring Napoli back on one-year deal

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Texas Rangers and Mike Napoli agreed to terms on a one-year contract that brings the 35-year-old back for his third stint with the club.

Quinn’s ‘all in, all the time,’ and he’ll have Falcons ready

HOUSTON — The young coach was relentless. Dan Quinn called San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Jim Mora Jr. so much he could recite the office number backward. When that didn't work, Quinn turned to his sister-in-law, who worked with Mora's wife. Rarely has an entry-level job been so coveted.
