Time to kick off Memorial Day weekend with some baseball! First, we have some moves by your favorite ballclub:

Two new pitchers are making their way to the bigs in Daniel Zamora, a former 40th-round selection who was recently claimed by the Mariners, and Héctor Santiago. I really hope we get to see Santiago tonight because his story is remarkable: Over a nine-year MLB career, the lefty has appeared for four different teams, including three non-consecutive stints with the White Sox. The M’s signed him to a minor league deal earlier this month, and he’s pitched just 14 innings in AAA thus far.
With that said, on to our lineups:
Chris Flexen faces off against Kolby Allard, a former first-round pick by the Braves. Should be a good* one!
* might not be a good one, but we’ve got 2⁄3 of a real MLB lineup, so I guess I won’t complain too much.
