Good evening. Your Seattle Mariners roll out a lineup today consisting of exactly 100% of the recommended daily value of Mikes.
Other certified Interesting Things about this lineup: Guillermo returns to the field and Rob Whalen looks to build on an already-resurgent spring training. The team faces certified Big League Pitcher and Horse Riding Aficionado Johnny Cueto. I recognize about two of their starters—no Longoria, no Posey, no Belt, no McCutchen, no Pence, no Crawford, no Panik. I’m starting to think these teams aren’t taking this game seriously, you guys.
Oh, also, the sequel to yesterday’s roster news:
Shawn Armstrong has cleared waivers and will remain in big league camp.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) March 8, 2018
So that’s nice for us. Ichiro won’t be on the field tonight, but he’s with the team and workin’ away:
Ichiro will have his first workout with the team today. Scheduled to hit in a group with Gordon, Vogelbach and Haniger.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) March 8, 2018
