The Seattle Mariners are hosting Texas Rangers in a split squad game. Their split squad, not ours. We have a full squad. Games between the Mariners and the Rangers would be fairer if they were only allowed to use half of their team.

Seattle Mariners vs. half of the Texas Rangers

Time: 1:05 p.m. PDT.
Location: Peoria Sports Complex, Peoria, AZ.

Lineup

Franklin Gutierrez CF
Kyle Seager 3B
Kendrys Morales DH
Raul Ibanez LF
Justin Smoak 1B
Jason Bay RF
Kelly Shoppach C
Dustin Ackley 2B
Robert Andino SS
Blake Beavan P

Good news: Jason Bay is not leading off and Franklin Gutierrez is back from that leg injury that had been keeping him out for most of the week. Felix Hernandez would be starting, but he was switched to the minor league game because Eric Wedge hates minor leaguers and wants to make them feel sad.
