A lineup and yes, some rotation news

Another Seattle Mariners lineup sure to displease some fans - that's Miguel Olivo at designated hitter tonight - will back the pitc hing of Hisashi Iwakuma against the Oakland Athletics.

Rolling through the final 23 games, Felix Hernandez, Iwakuma and Jason Vargas are likely to stay in rotation through the end of the season. As pointed out in a News Tribune story Friday, Kevin Millwood and Blake Beavan will start at least two more games each - and Erasmo Ramirez and Hector Noesi will start two games apiece in their place.

Game time, 6:10 p.m. Here's the full lineup:
