Cairo back at first base

A look at Miguel Cairo, taking grounders moments ago in preparation for his third consecutive start at first base later tonight. Cairo told me in the dugout that he spent two consecutive weeks at first base last season when playing for the New York Yankees last season. I looked it up and he did indeed spend much time at first base throughout June as the Yanks went through an unsettled season at the position with Jason Giambi injured.
Cairo has been making more of an impact with his glove than his .186 bat. Not a surprise, since he’s a former shortstop.
“You’ve got a bigger glove,” Cairo said of playing first. “You’ve just got to make sure you catch it, that’s all.”
Is Richie Sexson done in Seattle? Mariners manager John McLaren was tripping all over himself to avoid saying that when quizzed about it by reporters.
“This is starting to take on a life of its own,” McLaren said. “It’s just a situation where we expect a lot out of our players. We’re just trying to get him going. But in the meantime, the team was struggling so bad and we won two games, and that’s why Miguel is back out there.”
