Milwaukee Brewers Photo Day
I will never get another chance this year to use this photo of Lewis Brinson, so here, enjoy.

Today the Mariners take on the Brewers, another NL team they won’t see during the regular season. Top prospect Lewis Brinson isn’t in the lineup and I’m kind of bummed; maybe he’ll make an appearance later on. Side note: I’m really glad I don’t have to type Kirk Nieuwenhuis’s name on a regular basis. I find all those vowels so much harder to locate properly than the Polish smorgasbord of Scrabble’s name.


Also available as pitchers: Rzepczynski, Hagadone, Kiekhefer, Scribner, Weber, Brett Ash, Anthony Misciewicz oh my gosh I can’t believe I spelled that right on the first try. These folks better C the Z because they certainly have the alphabet cornered.

Today’s reserve player you haven’t heard of: Donnie Walton. If you keep up with Ethan’s excellent minor league coverage, Donnie Walton should ring a bell. If you don’t, he probably sounds like a member of a boy band. The second base prospect had a solid year last year at short-A Everett, slashing .281/.361/.421, and was named a NWL Mid-Season All-Star.

Game Time: 1:05 PM

Television? It’s the Mariners and the Brewers, what do you think?

Radio: Yes, but on a delay on 710 ESPN; also available on,, whatever. I think I might give the Brewers radio feed a try because when else am I going to listen to a Brewers game this year?
