Update: I was completely wrong! It's the Brewers with the split-squad, not the Mariners. Ignore all references below to the Mariners having a split-squad. Or, instead of ignoring them, you could learn a lesson from them. The lesson is: don't be wrong. It's a good thing my flight has been severely delayed so I could issue this correction.


This is a game thread written from the airport way in advance of the game, so this is a short game thread. Milwaukee Brewers! Seattle Mariners, except in half as a split-squad! Tuesday! 1:05pm PT! Be there, or be here, or be anywhere. I am not the boss of you.

The Mariners' starting lineup:

Ackley, 2B
Wells, RF
Carp, LF
Smoak, 1B
Montero, C
Peguero, DH
Seager, 3B
Saunders, CF
Kawasaki, SS

For a traveling split-squad lineup it's really not that bad. This team is just overflowing with hitters! The Mariners have the best hitters! Starting will be Hector Noesi, and relieving will be not-Hector Noesi. Probably several not-Hector Noesis.

Pretty soon, the Mariners are going to officially release their batch of 2012 team commercials. We'll talk about those when we can - hopefully this afternoon.
