Can you publish/tweet this information everyday?

We do a minor league report during the season that used to be used just for distribution to the media, but will make an effort to get that on the blog each day. We’ll also aim to do this the rest of spring training. Nothing fancy, just highlights and point you in the right direction to follow our youngsters!
