Joe Saunders takes the hill against Bronson Arroyo

Jamie Sabau

Nothing like early morning baseball. Joe Saunders and the Mariners look to take the series from the Reds today against Bronson Arroyo and the Cincinatti Reds, who was totally obnoxious in those Fan Cave commercials last year and used to do this with his hair. He also has released a cover album with songs from Stone Temple Pilots and Alice in Chains and is good buddies with Kevin Millar. None of this is baseball analysis but holy cow this guy seems like one of the last people I would ever want to be stuck on a desert island with.

Nick Franklin is back in there after missing yesterday with a swollen knee, and Justin Smoak is taking over first from Kendrys he went 0-14 in his past 3 games. Here's to hoping today looks nothing like yesterday's unfortunate debacle.
