Sunglasses at night

UPDATE: OF Jeremy Reed was scratched from today’s lineup and replaced by Bronson Sardinha because of a bruised right knee. He is day-to-day. Might have been from a slide in yesterday’s minor-league game, I am told. Also, DH Jose Vidro will hit off a tee tomorrow and could play Saturday, and P Miguel Batista will throw a bullpen session tomorrow and is scheduled to make his next start Sunday in a split-squad game at Milwaukee.
C’mon all you 80s music junkies, I know you get the reference. The reason I use it is because Corey Hart (the same name as the guy who sang “Sunglasses at Night”) is starting in RF for the Milwaukee Brewers today in their spring training game against the Mariners.
My favorite line in the song: “Don’t mess around with a guy in shades, oh no….I can’t believe it.”
So it’s on to the Phoenix borough of Maryvale this afternoon for the game. Felix Hernandez is the scheduled starter for Seattle.
3B Adrian Beltre has rejoined the team after going to Mexico for a personal matter earlier in the week, and he is in the lineup today. Manager John McLaren intended to let Beltre decide when he wants to play after Beltre returned from a dealing with a death in his wife’s family, and apparently Beltre is ready to go now.
McLaren said utility players Miguel Cairo and Willie Bloomquist “mirror each other,” and Cairo moves to SS today after being used at 3B in previous games. McLaren said Cairo will play in the outfield soon, “just to see what he brings.”
McLaren wasn’t specific as to which OF position for Cairo.
