Game 35, Devil Rays at Mariners
RHP Doug Waechter v RHP Felix Hernandez. 7:05 on FSN.
Soooooooooooo… Felix. Could you please bring your velocity and control today? I don’t want to make a big deal out of this, but you’ve really been worrying us lately. You’re flying all over the place, your pitches aren’t where they should be… what’s the scoop? Was it Chicago? Was it us? We can change.
Until lineups are posted, I can only wonder: do we get Lawton again?
And what’s the worst plausible outfield the Mariners could field? I’m thinking Ichiro takes a half-day off DHing, and it’s LF-Ibanez, CF-Bloomquist, RF-Lawton. If Ibanez has to play 1B, you could even get an Everett/Bloomquist/Lawton outfield (or heck, sit Bloomquist and go Everett/Lawton/Ibanez).
