Just a completely normal day of spring training down in Arizona, where the Mariners will take on the Athletics at noon. For some reason, I feel like I'm missing something in this here game thread preview, but I can't--for the life of me--remember what it is.

Let's see...well, we get no Rickie Weeks this afternoon, as he was feeling a little sore yesterday afternoon. It's apparently nothing to be worried about, so instead, we will have Nelson Cruz roaming the right field grass, and the effervescent Stefen Romero using that bat to get in some designated hits. Jordan Pries is going to pitch, and a bunch of minor leaguers are going to back him up throughout the game. God, seriously, it's just on the tip of my tongue. Something else is happening today, I swear. Something something Red Hot Chili Peppers?
