Dipping below .500 would not be ideal, so a win tonight would be good. Maybe this year will be the reverse of last year - coming close to .500 but never actually getting below it. Even though May has been tough, I think we still tune in every day, hoping for the first day of many where it all starts to click. Maybe the jogging of the rotation this weekend will be just what we need.
Here are the lineups for tonight. Teoscar is out for a second straight day, but is expected to play tomorrow. Maile gets the start at catcher, Russell Martin at 3rd base and Morales thankfully on the bench.
