The rewind gets a late start today because of another night game. But otherwise, it's still the same....If you want to keep track of the Mariners but don't have time to live on twitter, this is your one-stop location.
All of my relevant tweets are here in one place with, occasionally, a little extra. It's not instantaneous. For that, you have to follow me on twitter at @TNT_Mariners, but I'll try to update it frequently.
Latest stuff on top:
