Good morning! Today the Mariners once again play the Blue Jays in the modern-day equivalent of the Kingdome. Today's matchup features a combined age of 76 between the two starting pitchers, so in the great Spirit of '76 let's win independence from these Jays and their bottle-throwing loony fans. It's not often that Hisashi gets to be the spring chicken of the matchup; here's hoping the Mariners hitters can provide him a little more run support than they gave Canada's native son James Alston Paxton last night.

10:07 (UGH) on RTNW, RSN, and MLBN if you're out of market. That's a fun treat. If you have to have morning baseball, at least there should be a fun treat.
