Game 7, Mariners at Rangers

Millwood vs Lewis, 5:05 pm.

Eric Wedge has answered our prayers – Miguel Olivo is not in today’s starting line-up. Jesus Montero makes his debut behind the plate for the team, while John Jaso makes his first appearance of the year at DH. He’s hitting 9th – behind Brendan Ryan – which should tell you all you need to know about what Wedge thinks of him as a hitter, but, hey, Jaso and Montero are both playing and Olivo is not. I’ll take it any way I can get it.

Figgins, LF

    This game felt like a huge swing. A loss tonight, especially one with 0 or 1 runs would have killed me. In sports we’re slaves to the moment, but this one felt like a big one.

    I’m glad Jaso did so well. I would still want him to catch sometimes even if he had gone 0-for, though.

    I imagine we’ll see Olivo catching today, which sort of makes sense since Texas is throwing a lefty. That’s really the only time I’d have Olivo in the starting lineup. Otherwise, I’d split catching between Jaso and Montero.
    And Montero should be DH today.

    It hit me this morning

    Millwood doesn’t need the game called for him

    Montero probably gets the bulk of his starts when Millwood pitches

    He looked competant, not great but passable

    having the DH spot available would be excellent
