It appears that John Lackey is out until May. John has been a Mariner killer over the past few seasons. Along with John is Kelvim Escobar, he is out until mid-May. These injuries are not season ending, but should allow us to win a couple of series against the AL West rivals.
The M's are struggling during spring training, music to my ears. The more bugs that are worked out in Peoria, the less we should see them in Seattle.
Bedard is having a very bad spring, with an ERA over 9. I am not too concerned by this, as he will need time to settle in with his new team and with new pitching coach Mel. Ichiro finally broke his hitless streak on Friday, this one did have me concerned a bit, but he is now back on track.
