Can’t live on twitter but still want to follow the Mariners? We’ve got you covered with our twitter rewind. Just click here throughout the day to get all of my tweets (and, occasionally, some additional information) in one spot.
It’s not instantaneous. For that, you’ll have to follow me on twitter at @TNT_Mariners, but I’ll try to update this blog regularly throughout the day.
As for today…it’ll be a slow start before things pick up. The Mariners, 11-4-1, play a night game against the Chicago Cubs at Peoria Stadium.
