Creative M's lineup

Posted by Larry Stone

Jim Riggleman will trot out one of the more, uh, interesting lineups of the year to face tough Tim Hudson:

Ichiro RF

Willie Bloomquist 2B

Raul Ibanez LF

Jose Vidro 1B

Jeremy Reed CF

Yuniesky Betancourt SS

Jeff Clement C

Miguel Cairo 3B

Carlos Silva P

Adrian Beltre is still bothered by his sore left index finger, even though it's improving. Jose Lopez is just getting a day off. So is Richie Sexson (hold your jokes). I think I'm going to revive my "reverse lock" theory of a couple of weeks ago and call another Mariners' victory, because this lineup shouldn't have a prayer against Hudson.

A couple other tidbits from pre-game session with Riggleman: He still doesn't know if Erik Bedard (back spasms) can make Wednesday's start against the Mets, but if he can't, Miguel Batista would probably sub. Batista might pitch Tuesday and R.A. Dickey on Wednesday. Riggleman also said that when Brandon Morrow is fully recovered, Batista is likely to go back in the rotation, with Dickey returning to the bullpen.
