Mike Montgomery Vs. Derek Holland

Running around this morning but if you're not you get morning baseball! Mariners baseball, even. I am happy for you if this is the case. Even a journey such as the Mariners find themselves on beats the slog that is work. Do not work, kids, it is for suckers.

Mike Montgomery is going to try and get through 5 innings for the first time in a few weeks, Derek Holland is back in action as is Jesus Montero. Montero is buried way down in the 8 hole while Austin Jackson and his "just trying to return serve" swing are two spots higher. This isn't a bad decision because 1) who cares? 2) lineups don't matter 3) Jesus Montero hasn't really proven anything. But, BUT, I like him more than Austin Jackson so I remain annoyed.

Win, ya fallow husks.
