Here is your Mariners opening lineup

Manager Lloyd McClendon has posted his Cactus League opener lineup and it looks a lot like what could potentially be the Mariners’ regular lineup, minus right fielder Corey Hart at this point.

The Mariners will be careful with Hart early as he returns from a pair of knee surgeries, but he’s been practicing every day and doing well so far. If Hart was in the mix, you figure he’d play right field and Michael Saunders would move to center. But McClendon is going to give a good look at a lot of players this spring, including Abraham Almonte, who is playing center this morning and leading off.

Here’s what we’ve got for today’s 12:05 p.m. game against the Padres, which will be broadcast live on 710 ESPN Seattle.

Wedge was constantly messing with the line up. The interim coach had a fairly consistent line up with Miller leading off. Is McClendon a mixer or will he be consistent once the season is under way?

And I have to say I like Miller better than Franklin.
