So, after completely bungling the Adam Jones promotion, the Mariners turn to a crappy AAAA'er to try and shut down one of the more potent batting orders I've seen in my life.

I think it's safe to say that it'll take a lot of offense to bring this skid to a halt. Fortunately, with Snelling in the lineup and the Yankees starting some guy I've never heard of, there's reason for a little hope. We're running thin on effective, healthy arms, but if you're planning on a slugfest, that's not the kind of thing you need to worry about.
