Game 143, Mariners at Blue Jays
Millwood vs Romero, 4:05 pm.
The last time the M’s faced Ricky Romero, Wedge rolled out a lefty heavy line-up, because Romero’s the odd LHP with a significant reverse platoon split; it was perhaps the most forward thinking thing Wedge has done all year. Romero actually pitched decently that night, though, so he’s scaling back a bit tonight, starting Olivo behind the plate and Robinson over Thames, which moves Saunders to RF for the night. He’s still starting the three regular left-handed everyday guys and Carp at first base, so it’s not totally abandoning the left-on-left match-up that Romero is so bad at, but it would have been nice to see Jaso in the line-up again.
