The first "half" ends after today. Hooray! A break from Mariners baseball! A break from pretty much all baseball!
Suggestion for Major League Baseball, please make All Star breaks over the weekends in the future.

Eric Wedge almost repeats his lineup from last night save that John Jaso moves into DH (not surprising) and Miguel Olivo takes over at catcher, bumping Carlos Peguero out of the line up. Jesus Montero is still recovering from his mild concussion. Prudence says to give him the full week with the All Star Break upon us and the Mariners next game not until the 13th. Friday the 13th!
