News Coverage of Mariners Baseball on the Road beat writer Greg Johns, shown here after Felix Hernandez’s perfect game, will provide detailed coverage of the Mariners on the final three road trips.

The Mariners head for the airport today to begin their next road trip, this time to Chicago (three games vs. the White Sox over the weekend) and Minnesota (four games vs. the Twins next week).  There are just three trips remaining this year.

Because the Seattle Times and the (Tacoma) News Tribune as of now are not planning on sending their beat reporters to cover the team on the road the remainder of the season, the only coverage of Mariners Baseball by the regular reporters will be provided by Greg Johns, the fine beat reporter for  Greg will follow the team through the final three trips of the 2012 season. In addition to, you can also follow the detailed coverage by Greg through his Blog, Mariners Musings, and via twitter @GregJohnsMLB.

This is Greg’s second season on the Mariners beat for, but he is in his 26th year covering the sports scene in Seattle, including the Bellevue Journal-American and Seattle Post-Intelligencer.  He is one of the most versatile writers in the area, capable of providing game coverage and features as well as analysis and opinion.

Of course, Shannon Drayer will continue to cover the Mariners at home and on the road for 710 ESPN Seattle, and the Mariners Radio Network. And all games will be broadcast on TV by ROOT Sports.
