Happy Felix Day! On this, the first King's Court of the year, let us hope for a dominant performance on the mound against the A's, and some blistering M's bats against their hound dog, Chris Bassit.

Today's Lineups

OAKLAND A'S SEATTLE MARINERS
Coco Crisp - CF Norichika Aoki - LF
Chris Coghlan - 3B Kyle Seager - 3B
Josh Reddick - RF Robinson Cano - 2B
Stephen Vogt - DH Nelson Cruz - RF
Jed Lowrie - 2B Adam Lind - 1B
Khris Davis - LF Seth Smith - DH
Yonder Alonso - 1B Ketel Marte - SS
Josh Phegley - C Steve Clevenger - C
Marcus Semien - SS Leonys Martin - CF
Chris Bassitt - RHP Felix Hernandez - RHP

Felix is 7-1 with a 2.60 ERA in his last 11 starts against the A's. Bassit looked good his first start of the year against the White Sox before giving up a run shot late in the game, and taking a no-decision.

In addition to their first home win, the Mariners bats will look to rebound a bit.

This covers the teeny-tiniest of sample sizes, so take it with several early season grains of salt, but giving the left-handed bats an afternoon of easier hitting sounds nice. Doesn't that sound nice?

Happy Felix Day. Happy Sunday. May it be filled with sunshine and lollipops, and a Mariners win to avoid the sweep.
