Montero back behind plate to catch Noesi

Here’s tonight’s Mariners lineup, stacked with right-handers against White Sox lefty Chris Sale:
Chone Figgins CF
Dustin Ackley 2B
Ichiro RF
Justin Smoak 1B
Jesus Montero C
Miguel Olivo DH
Alex Liddi 3B
Casper Wells LF
Brendan Ryan SS
Hector Noesi RHP
Noesi and Montero worked well together last time, with Noesi throwing eight shutout innings against Oakland, so I’m not surprised Montero is behind the plate again. If that’s the case, and Wedge wants to use all his righties, that leaves Miguel Olivo to be the designated hitter. And so he is.
