Series Preview: M's at Rays 4/8-4/10

posted by Jon

Seattle moves on from an embarrassing showing in Baltimore to take on the revamped Rays in Tampa Bay.

Projected Starters:
4/08 - Erik Bedard vs. Matt Garza
4/09 - Jarrod Washburn vs. Andy Sonnanstine
4/10 - Miguel Batista vs. Edwin Jackson

Note: In the previous Series Preview the starters were listed as Washburn-Batista-Hernandez-Bedard. As you probably know by now, Bedard had some hip inflamation and had his start pushed back to this series, resulting in a lineup shuffle that produced a Washburn-Batista-Hernandez-Silva pitching order in Baltimore. Look for another rotation shuffle after this series in order to separate the lefties Bedard and Washburn.

Keys to the Series:
Not a lot to this one, Seattle just needs to bounce back from an awful series against the Orioles. The rotation needs to keep doing what their doing and the relievers have to step it up to fill the giant void left by J.J. Putz.

I'd give you more, but I'm still not completely caught up with what's happening in Mariner-land after my long weekend away. Continue to help fill me in here.
