Saturday's line-up vs. the Dodgers

Interesting lineup today with the rhyming group of Paulino, Zunino and Andino batting 6-7-8 in the order. It will be interesting to see if Justin Smoak can continue his torrid pace and continue to hit the ball hard. Kyle Seager has had a relatively quiet camp, but hasn't played a whole lot either. With Alex Liddi headed to the WBC and Vinnie Catricala destined for minor league camp in a week or so, that will change.

It will also be interesting to watch Kameron Loe. If he continues to pitch well, I think he will make the bullpen.

Also it's worth noting that Felix Hernandez will throw another live BP session tomorrow and then make his Cactus League debut on Thursday against either the Kansas City Royals or the Oakland A's (the Mariners are a split squad that day). I'm guessing it will be the Royals. Even it is only for an inning, the Mariners will probably want to avoid throwing him against a division rival. Also both games are road games and the Royals stadium in Surprise is much closer.
