The Mariners have escaped the Cactus League and are ready to start taking baseball seriously. Manager Eric Wedge rolls out a R-L-S-R-L-S-R-L-R lineup to neutralize those pesky specialist bullpens, a lineup we should expect to see again on Opening Day (both opposing pitchers are southpaws).

Spring Mobile Ballpark sits in one of the more spectacular settings you'll find in affiliated baseball. Also: dingers. Today will be a colossal disappointment if Morse doesn't hit a ball 500 feet.
