Saturday lineups, Mariners vs. Indians

True story: I went to the Cleveland Cavaliers team shop today to get a LeBron James jersey for someone’s birthday (shhhh, keep it a secret), and the clerk told me, “Sorry, we’re out of LeBron James jerseys.”
At the Cavaliers team shop. But they had plenty of Daniel Gibsons. Then I went to Baskin-Robbins, and they were out of ice cream.
Not that Tomo Ohka is vulnerable, but he’s second on the Indians in homers allowed (9) even though he’s pitched in only seven games (just four starts). He’s 0-3 with a 6.40 ERA and almost half the hits he’s allowed (17 of 38) have gone for extra bases. Of course, he hasn’t faced the Mariners’ lineup yet.
Though it appeared yesterday that Russ Branyan’s back was still bothering him, he’s back at first base. Wladimir Balentien gets a rare start in left.
