It’s a gorgeous afternoon for Mariners baseball! Or it would be if they weren’t playing in Cleveland. Although they’re getting some sun, too, it’ll be a chilly evening at Jacobs Field:
The M’s are trotting out their projected starting lineup for the first time this season, and folks,,,,, it is good.

Cleveland’s offense has struggled mightily all season, coming into today with a team wRC+ of just 79. Their pitching has been predictably phenomenal, though, and is the main reason they hold first place in the AL Central. Mike Clevinger is off to a fast start in 2018, although his microscopic 3.3% HR/FB and below-average strikeout and walk numbers suggest that regression may be coming.
