I would say that I hope today’s game is more enjoyable than last night’s, but that seems like a pretty low bar. From Dee Gordon suffering a minor injury to Mitch Haniger not being in the lineup to multiple TOOTBLANs, there wasn’t lot that went well for the M’s. Today sees James Paxton take the hill against the Rockies as the Mariners try to keep pace against the class of the AL.

|Trevor Story - SS||Kyle Seager - 3B|
|Ian Desmond - DH||Ryon Healy - 1B|

The good news: Mitch Haniger is back. The bad news: Dee Gordon is out, and both Ben Gamel and Denard Span are getting the day off against a lefty in favor of new call-up John Andreoli. Andreoli should be ok, but the bottom of this lineup looks... less than ok.
