Surprise, surprise, Canada’s number one export after Stubby Clapp is hurt, eh? Erik Bedard takes his inflammed shoulder to the DL. The Mariners say he’ll be fine to return on June 23rd.

Between smoke breaks, Jim Leyland anointed Fernando Rodney the opening day closer. This sounds like when you were a kid and you tried to pulled something like, “Pops, you said not to put on my bathing suit until after lunch so I went into the pool in my dungarees.” Leyland is saying Rodney is the opening day closer, then on April 7th he’ll call on Lyon to close a game.Please, blog, may I have some more?
