THIS GAME IS ON TV!!!! (if you have MLB.TV access)

Huzzah, huzzah, we’ve got FOUR (4!) TV games in a row as we head into the weekend, folks. Today’s game is only available via the Dodgers feed on MLB.TV, but we’ll take what we can get when it comes to moving images of these Seattle Mariners.


Oh boy, it’s Trevor Bauer! That should be interesting. Chris Flexen takes the mound for the Mariners as he looks to continue to build momentum for his MLB comeback. Corey Brock wrote at length about Flexen’s time in KBO and how he got here, highly recommended for fans of good underdog stories.

Sadly we’ll have no brother versus brother action tonight as Kyle Seager appears to have the night off. Hopefully smack will still be talked from the dugouts.

Other news tidbits from today!

  • 25% capacity for Mariners opening day? Okay then!
  • “What we don’t know keeps the contracts alive and movin.’”
  • MLB is set to use MiLB as it’s testing sandbox for features not very many fans or players were seeking, but okay!

All right, let’s do that practice baseball!

Game time: 5:05 PM PT
Radio: 710 ESPN & Seattle Mariners dot com

Lastly, Happy 311 Day to those who partake in gloriously positive and corny rap-metal-reggae fusion.
