Mike Hargrove was asked about his opening day lineup Thursday and acknowledged he had one in mind, but wasn’t about to give up much yet.

Ichiro Suzuki would bat leadoff, he said, and he was leaning toward keeping Adrian Beltre in the second spot.

A few hours later, a new leadoff candidate emerged in the Mariners team parking lot – a road runner.

The bird covered good ground, showed speed and quickness.

The team made no effort to sign him, however, opting instead to leave a gate open so the little fellow could escape without being caught in a rundown.
