No Smoak, we’ll see if there’s some fire in Mariners lineup

Standing here in the visitors’ clubhouse corridor as Miguel Olivo and Brendan Ryan shout over my shoulder,


so it’s tough to concentrate.

But I did indeed check the lineup and it’s a bit of a new twist. Ryan isn’t in there and looks healthy to me.

Justin Smoak isn’t in there, either. We know he’s had some hamstring issues dating back to a game a week ago Saturday. But I haven’t seen him yet today. You would think Eric Wedge would want him in there against a right hander but it’s Alex Liddi instead.

Munenori Kawasaki in at shortstop in Ryan’s place. We’ll know more within the hour.
