Thursday night's line-up vs. the Cubs ... Jason Bay in centerfield?

3-21 -- line-ups vs. Cubs

Yes, that is correct. Jason Bay is in center field tonight. Is that going to be common occurrence? I doubt it. You can do these things in spring training a little. Even Bay admitted he couldn't imagine being asked to play in center during the season. He said he played some center last spring during some games and also in the 2009 World Baseball Classic for Canada.

Also in some house cleaning news, Mike Jacobs has been cut from big league camp. He cleaned out his locker today. This isn't unexpected. He will likely be the every day first baseman for the Rainiers.
