Felix Hernandez vs. Michael Pineda

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Felix Day!

Felix Hernandez vs. Michael Pineda. The master vs. the apprentice. Luke vs. Vader. Insert your good vs. evil comparison here.

The Mariners are coming off a losing series to the dumb Cleveland Indians and are now two games under .500, a series in which they must at least defeat either Michael Pineda or Masahiro Tanaka to get back to an even record. It all starts tonight.

Well, Lloyd McClendon decided to toss out a really weird lineup tonight. Should be pretty fun. In addition, a couple of other fun things are happening:

Yeah. Lotsa stuff happening. This is what happens when your starting pitching is worn thin.
