Mariners blog

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

Mariners play Royals

The Times decided a while back to hire a freelancer in Kansas City to cover the Mariners’ series against the Royals. The idea is to keep the budget around for the all-important off-season, covering the new general manager and potential remaking of the team at the baseball winter meetings. Or, other important events as they develop. So, we don’t have any Times writers at the game to do the in-game blog. I will be joining the team in Oakland on Friday. Until then, let’s see whether Carlos Silva looks any better out on the mound tonight than he did his last time out. Anyone remember when that was? In Texas, I think. Looked OK for a bit, then gave it all up in a big fifth inning.
The lineups:
MARINERS
Ichiro RF
Betancourt SS
Ibanez LF
Lopez 1B
Reed CF
Hulett DH
Tuiasosopo 3B
Johjima C
Valbuena 2B
RHP Carlos Silva
ROYALS
David DeJesus CF
Mike Aviles SS
Jose Guillen RF
Ryan Shealy 3B
Mark Teahen LF
Billy Butler 3B
Alex Gordon 3B
Miguel Olivo C
Alberto Callaspo 2B
RHP Kyle Davies
Lacks the drama of our earlier MLB 2K matchup, but this game will showcase some M’s of the future. You won’t get much of that with the virtual team.
