A new Mariners lineup - with Ichiro batting second

The day after manager Eric Wedge talked about change in the Seattle Mariners lineup, he posted a new one - one with Dustin Ackley leading off and Ichiro Suzuki batting second.

It's not that players were benched as much as roles changed as the Mariners approach the All-Star break.

Here's tonight's lineup vs. Oakland:
