Happy Mother’s Day weekend. Today happens to be my mom’s birthday, but she’s out of town so I won’t get to celebrate her until tomorrow. Instead, the Mariners’ double header will have to keep me entertained.
In Mariners News...
- Relive the no-no.
- Catch up on exciting Mariners information by listening to the Wheelhouse podcast.
- This is an article from The Athletic, so it’s not free, but I thought it was worth including because it’s Mother’s Day weekend and highlights Braden Bishop’s changed mindset after his mother fell ill.
