In Mariners news...
- Frustration was the flavor of the day yesterday, as J.P. wasn’t afraid to say that he and Julio let the team down at a critical point last night.

- This video hit the timeline yesterday with such force that at one point it was on my For You tab in five consecutive tweets. Everybody really wants to see Iowa caught with their pants down, I guess.
