Mariners, Athletics name starters for Tokyo series

The Mariners and Athletics will kick off the regular season a week before the other 28 teams with a two-game series in Tokyo, Japan March 20 and 21. The clubs have announced their starters for both series.

For the Mariners, Marco Gonzales will start the first game, followed by Yusei Kikuchi. For the A’s, Mike Fiers will start the first game, followed by Brett Anderson.

In other news, it sure doesn’t feel like the regular season should begin by the end of next week….

Probably the last time we see Ichiro in a ML game?

I was in Tokyo for a semester in 2003 and was going to go to the M's/A's opener, but it got cancelled after the start of the Iraq War. Stupid war.
