oh gosh do we have to

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Seattle Mariners
grrr I’m the Opener GRRRR
Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

The Mariners take on the Astros tonight in a game that...might be lightly attended, to put it nicely. Even with the Astros missing a lot of their major firepower, things do not stack up nicely for the struggling Mariners.

Corey Gearrin will get the “opener” start for the first time, with Wade LeBlanc, who has struggled lately, entering after him. Whee, I guess?

Programming note: Tonight’s game is on ESPN, not ROOT. Game time is at 7:10 and the game will be available on the radio on 710 as usual.

Meanwhile, the draft is still going on and the Mariners have two more picks to make on Day One, after taking RHP George Kirby from Elon University in the first round at #20.
