Mission: Impossible For Eric Wedge
- Filling out the batting line-up for the Seattle Mariners. It's part of manager Eric Wedge's job description. He can't avoid it. No matter how inadequate it may seem, Wedge has to put together some combination of players on this roster night after night to try and win a game. It's not easy says The Seattle Times' Steve Kelley. In fact, it might be Mission: Impossible.
- OTHER NEWS OF NOTE: Speaking of that line-up...they won 10-3 last night against the Texas Rangers. Actually putting the nail in the coffin with a six-run rally in the eighth, not on homers alone but stringing together productive at-bats with hit-after-hit. The final game in the 3-game series is today. Listen to 700espn for pre-game at 4:00pm; first pitch at 5:05pm.
