Review/Preview #1

The Week That Was: The Rainiers opened the season with four in Sacramento, splitting the series. Tacoma dropped the first two games due to an imploding bullpen, but turned it around and took the last two games. At 2-2, the Rainiers are in second in the PCL Pacific North division, one game behind the Salt Lake Bees

The Week Upcoming: The Rainiers finish of the opening road trip with four in Fresno against the Grizzlies. Then it's home to Cheney Stadium for the home opener and four more against Sacramento.

The Opponent: The Fresno Grizzlies, Triple-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. The Grizzlies play at the lovely (and damn near unpronounceable) Chukchansi Park. The Grizzlies are a veteran club with few real prospects and several recent Rainiers like Justin Leone and Scott Atchison. The Grizzlies do feature the best prospect in the Giants system and one of the better prospects in the minor leagues: pitcher Tim Lincecum. Lincecum, a former Washington Husky and winner of the Golden Spikes award, is a hard-throwing, undersized righthander with a funky delivery.
