Sunday’s pregame notes and lineups: Mariners at Astros

**** Manager Lloyd McClendon hasn’t made a decision on whether Chris Young will start on Thursday in Toronto as scheduled. “We’re talking,” McClendon said. “We haven’t come to any decision as of yet.” Really he doesn’t have many options. There are two. 1. Start Erasmo Ramirez in his place. It’s like asking do you want to be punched…

Saturday’s pregame notes and lineups: Mariners at Astros

*** So Lloyd McCledon was asked about the lineup. Some really handsome baseball writer with Montana ties, grunted out a question that was basically …. “Ackley two homers last night, um, you know lineup stuff.” McClendon, who was in a good mood having watched KC lose moments before, smiled and said: “Ah, #$%^ write whatever the #%^*…
