Admit it, you've been wondering - if Milton Bradley is the No. 3 hitter for the Seattle Mariners, who bats third when Bradley doesn't?
Eric Wedge came up with the answer today - journeyman Adam Kennedy. Why?
"Adam is a veteran guy who's strong upstairs," Wedge said. "Batting t hird isn't going to mess with his mind."
Not sure who that says more about; Kennedy or everyone else on this team. Regardless, Erik Bedard will try to snap a six-game Mariners losing streak with Chris Gimenez catching, Luis Rodriguez playing shortstop and Kennedy at second.
For those wondering, second baseman Jack Wilson worked out before the game, talked to Wedge again and the manager insists he's 'Game On.' Not in the lineup yet, but ready to be.
Here's the lineup vs. RHP Josh Tomlin:
