Sexson gets platooned

I knew that would get your attention. The lineups are out and Ben Broussard is at first base for the Mariners against right hander Jered Weaver. Mariners manager John McLaren said Sexson will be back in the lineup Friday to face lefty Jon Lester, but wouldn’t commit to anything beyond that.,
“I’m not going to sat Richie’s a platoon player by any stretch of the imagination,” McLaren said. “(But) it’s been four months and he needs to get going. He’s working hard and we keep thinking today’s going to be the day.
“We need him to pick it up.”
Listen to exactly what McLaren had to say
