Daily coverage of the Mariners during the season and all year long.

Doubleheader today

Sort of. The Mariners play their first and perhaps only minor-league game of the spring. They could schedule another down the road but it’s not certain.
Following that game, it’s the regularly scheduled spring training affair against those hated Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Is that what they are now? Or is it just the Los Angeles Angels? There’s only one team in L.A. for my money, and as much as I like what Arte Moreno has done, it’s the Dodgers.
Anyway, last year’s first-round draft pick, Phillippe Aumont, is scheduled to pitch this morning. I’ll have some details later in the day but now I have to do the walk, as Morris Day and the Time spoke of in a song from the 1980s, to the Padres’ section of the complex here in Peoria.
Before I go, let’s take a look at the regular-heavy lineups for today’s big-league game. M’s manager John McLaren talked this week about wanting to win this game and told a story of how the Angels brought two busloads of players to a game against Seattle in spring training one year in Peoria, and then-manager Lou Piniella asked McLaren, his bench coach at the time, why so many.
“They want to win,” McLaren said. “That’s what it’s all about.”
McLaren intends to send a similar message to the Angels, that the Mariners intend to reverse the trend of Angels’ more recent dominance of them. L.A. was 13-6 vs. Seattle in 2007.
