PREGAME: Line-ups, linkage and whatever else comes to mind.

* Here's my game story that leads with Jarrod Washburn collecting his first win.

* Here's the game story that leads with the Cha Sizzle facing his former teammates. It also has Felix updates in there.

* The Rainiers lost last night, But if you aren't doing anything in Tacoma this evening - I can't believe I just wrote that - you should go Cheney. Rich Dorman is starting for the Rainiers, while Angels prospect Nick Adenhart is going for Salt Lake.

* The Boston Herald has this story about Boston's Theo Epstein wanting to create a player development machine. And it looks like he has done that with his two assistants Ben Cherington and Jed Hoyer as GM candidates perhaps in Seattle.

I talked with Boston's AL West scout today at the gym and he mentioned the same thing. He also had some interesting observations about the Ms in general.

* Here's another story on Puyallup native and Bellarmine grad Jon Lester and his success.

* Hideki Matsui is on the DL, and there is a possibility of knee surgery. Paging Mr. Ibanez?
