Game 71, Mariners at Diamondbacks
Vargas vs Cahill, 12:40 pm.
Its getaway day in Arizona, so the M’s run out a somewhat unorthodox line-up, especially given that a right-handed pitcher is on the mound for the D’Backs.
Casper Wells is the new Alex Liddi, I guess – string together a few good games and all of the sudden you’re hitting in the middle of the order against a right-hander. I like Casper, but this won’t last. Also, Figgins is officially behind Kawasaki on the depth chart, as even with Smoak getting a day off and no real backup first baseman on the roster, he’s still sitting on the bench. So huzzah for that at least.
