Seattle Mariners at Tampa Bay Bizarro Mariners

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Tampa Bay Rays
well you see, i am very strong and i swung the bat very hard and the ball landed very far away. it’s simple, really.

Good morning! Grab some coffee and have some breakfast baseball! It may or may not help your hangover. We shall see. Here’s your lineups, you party animal.

Today's Lineups

Jean Segura - SS Kevin Kiermaier - CF
Danny Valencia - 1B Lucas Duda - DH
Robinson Cano - 2B Evan Longoria - 3B
Nelson Cruz - DH Logan Morrison - 1B
Mitch Haniger - RF Steven Souza - RF
Taylor Motter - 3B Corey Dickerson - LF
Guillermo Heredia - CF Jesus Sucre - C
Ben Gamel - LF Brad Miller - 2B
Carlos Ruiz - C Adeiny Hechavarria - SS
Yovani Gallardo - RHP Blake Snell - LHP

You may have noticed an old familiar name in there. Here’s why:

So the short-lived Mariners career of Danny Espinosa comes to an end and the other, not nearly as good Flow Bro is back in action. Giving Seager another day off to put some weight back post-illness seems like a good plan. Having Motter bat that high in the order is laughable, but hey, prove me wrong, Legolas.

Continue streaking, boys!
