No Jean, No Puig, No Happy

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Oakland Athletics Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

There is baseball today. That baseball will not have Jean Segura or Yasiel Puig, but it will have the Mariners and Dodgers. So that’s nice for them. Here are the lineups for the baseball teams, which again, are the Mariners and the Dodgers.

Today's Lineups

DODGERS MARINERS
Brian Dozier - 2B Mitch Haniger - RF
Justin Turner - 3B Robinson Cano - 2B
Manny Machado - SS Nelson Cruz - DH
Cody Bellinger - CF Denard Span - LF
Matt Kemp - DH Kyle Seager - 3B
Enrique Hernandez - RF Ryon Healy - 1B
Max Muncy - 1B Cameron Maybin - CF
Yasmani Grandal - C Mike Zunino - C
Joc Pederson - LF Dee Gordon - SS

Dee Gordon is back at shortstop, which makes me question why Gordon Beckham and Andrew Romine are here and Ben Gamel is in Tacoma. Nothing against Gordon or Andrew. But seriously, bring back Ben Gamel. Start four outfielders if you have to. Just do it. Wade LeBlanc pitches for the Mariners; lately I’ve been thinking Jamie Moyer was an ur-LeBlanc all along and we didn’t know it. No, that doesn’t make sense. Yes, I know. Enjoy the game. I suggest reading along on Andy McCullough’s twitter, which is one of the most entertaining things in baseball.
