First Cactus League Game Thread
The exhibition season kicks off today with the Mariners hosting the Giants down in Peoria. The game will be broadcast on 710 ESPN, starting at 12:05 in Seattle. Tim Lincecum starts for the Giants, and the M’s counter with Doug Fister.
The first line-up of the spring looks pretty darn close to what I’d expect the M’s to run out on opening day, with one or two small changes.
1. Ichiro, RF
2. Figgins, 2B
3. Bradley, LF
4. Griffey, DH
5. Lopez, 3B
6. Kotchman, 1B
7. Byrnes, CF (this will be Gutierrez on Opening Day)
8. Moore, C (gotta think this will be Rob Johnson catching Felix)
9. Wilson, SS
