A double-header of sorts today for Seattle, which will play the Dodgers on the road in a 9 am. PT) 'B' game, then take on the Giants in Peoria at noon (PT).
The issue is to get innings for all the pitching, get at-bats for players who are going to see opportunties decrease in the next 7-10 days. Eric Wedge and his staff got creative today.
In the 'B' game, for instance, Milton Bradley is the center fielder, Adam Kennedy the left fielder. In the Cactus League game, Jack Cust will be in left field, Ryan Langerhans in center and Gabe Gross in right.
Here are the two lineups, with the 'A' game first:
