Game 26, Angels at Mariners
LHP Washburn v RHP Franklin, 7:05, FSN
Standard lineup for the M’s even though it’s a lefty. Will the defense save Franklin again? Will Choo ever see action?
In-stadium All-Star balloting starts tonight, and Pokey Reese is on the ballot. Isn’t this a little early to start voting? I mean… really now. (Pokey note: Reese is seeking his second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, who you know from many, many other player injuries.)
From the press notes: 18,000 tickets available for Tuesday’s game, and 20,000 available for the mid-week afternoon game. And today’s predicted color bit: the Mariners didn’t give up a home run in “the past 31.2 innings”
