Hello everyone! Obviously the biggest story of the offseason for the Mariners will be the news that dropped yesterday regarding Dr. Lorena Martin. If you haven’t already, you need to check out TJ Cotterill’s article at The News Tribune which included exclusive conversations with Martin about the alleged incidents.
Here’s what else you need to know today...
