And the first Cactus League lineup is posted

The Cactus League begins today for the Mariners, and manager Don Wakamatsu is going to do everything in his power to win it.

Well, not really.

Wakamatsu is taking precautions with veterans, easing them into games. So today, no Griffey, no Sweeny, no Branyan, no Gutierrez.

Instead, a lot of other players in camp are going to get the chance to play - and try to prove they can play.

Today's lineup:

Endy Chavez CF

Jeff Clement DH

Mike Morse 3B

Chris Shelton 1B

Greg Halman LF

Mike Wilson RF

Jamie Burke C

Chris Woodward SS

Reegie Corona 2B

Felix Hernandez P
