Today's line-ups vs. the Los Angeles Angels

Finally someone other than the Padres. I'm all for the heated intensity that comes when two natural rivals hook up. But three straight days in the Cactus League? Well, that's just craziness. It will be the debuts of Brendan Ryan, Dustin Ackley and Jeremy Bonderman.

With Bonderman, it's hard to know what his plan will be since he hasn't thrown in a game since 2010.  Some guys work on certain things, maybe a particular pitch, especially when they are only throwing one inning. Bonderman's bullpens have featured him showing all of his pitches. I'm guessing just getting on the mound in a competitive environment will be big for him.

The Mariners will get to see Mike Trout, but Josh Hamilton, Albert Pujols, Howie Kendrick or Mark Trumbo.

Interesting note ... reliever Chad Cordero is trying to make a comeback again. He made a comeback with the Mariners after years of arm trouble and even made it to the majors leagues. He's good dude, so I will be pulling for hi.
