Well, here it is! The coldest game of baseball in existence, because it totally makes sense to build a completely outdoor stadium in Minnesota. Yup, I’m guessing 20 separate people had to sign off on that one, and they apparently thought it was a good idea. The Mariners are 3-3. Will we look wistfully back on this day and spend the rest of the season counting the distance to 0.500? Or is this just another game in a season that is finally Good?
Before the lineups, first some good news from Shannon Drayer.
News continues to be good w/Mariners on the mend. Cruz to resume baseball activity in next couple of days, Zunino progressing, could be ready when team returns to Seattle.— Shannon Drayer (@shannondrayer) April 7, 2018
That’s good, having Cruz instead of Ryon Healy and Zunino instead of Mike Marjama should... make a difference.
|SEATTLE MARINERS||MINNESOTA TWINS|
|Dee Gordon - CF||Brian Dozier - 2B|
|Jean Segura - SS||Joe Mauer - 1B|
|Robinson Cano - 2B||Miguel Sano - 3B|
|Mitch Haniger - RF||Eddie Rosario - LF|
|Kyle Seager - 3B||Logan Morrison - DH|
|Daniel Vogelbach - DH||Eduardo Escobar - SS|
|Ryon Healy - 1B||Max Kepler - RF|
|Ichiro Suzuki - LF||Byron Buxton - CF|
|Mike Marjama - C||Jason Castro - C|
|Mike Leake - RHP||Jose Berrios - RHP|
I’m optimistic! Jose Berrios is no slouch, but the Mariners should have an easier time against the righty than they would againsta southpaw. Or at least Dan Vogelbach should.
