A good start time for those of you working 9-5 jobs, as you should be home in time to catch most of the Mariners game on TV as they take on a competent Major League Baseball team for the first time since Sunday.
This will be Joel Pineiro's first start for the Mariners since last July, when he was put on the DL with an elbow injury. He'll be facing a lineup that ranks last in the Majors in both OBP and walks, a lineup that could be without Scott Podsednik and Carl Everett for the whole weekend. Six strong innings shouldn't be too much to ask. Hopefully he'll get a little breathing room, as the lineup should be able to score a handful of runs off Jon Garland. Ozzie Guillen may not realize it, but Comiskey's a home run ballpark, and that works more in our favor than it does theirs.
LET'S GO MARINERS!
