Mariners take Dustin Ackley with No. 2 overall pick

UPDATE 3:49 p.m.: Just been told that 4:20 p.m. will be our first pitch tonight.
A look at the field, still covered, as storm clouds hover. But the rain has slowed to a near non-entity, so we could get this thing going on time.
By the way, the Mariners, as expected, selected University of North Carolina 1B/OF Dustin Ackley with the No. 2 overall pick. Ackley could play left field or second base in the majors.
