Meche (8-5, 4.65)           Carrasco (3-3, 3.23)

Carrasco is a Rule 5 pick turned replacement-level reliever turned acceptable starter, whose misleading ERA masks some ugly peripherals. A funny arm angle gives him some success against righties, but look Ibanez and our starting outfield to get in some good swings. Gil Meche, we know. He's been bad in his last three starts, but there's nothing like a little touch of Kansas City to cure what ails you.

LET'S GO MARINERS!
