Apparently a couple of websites and newspapers (not sure if we did) had the Mariners rotation for the next few days out of order. It led to some people thinking there was a magical pitching match-up between C.C. Sabathia vs. Felix Hernandez on Saturday at Safeco Field.

I’m sorry to tell you that it isn’t going to happen. It will be Doug Fister vs. Sabathia. But you could see Felix vs. A.J. Burnett on Friday night, which is a damn good match-up.

Here’s the match-ups for the next five days.

Wednesday, Sept. 16 — LHP Ryan Rowland-Smith vs. RHP Gavin Floyd
Thursday, Sept. 17 — RHP Brandon Morrow vs. LHP John Danks
Friday, Sept. 18 — RHP Felix Hernandez vs. RHP A.J. Burnett
Saturday, Sept. 19 — RHP Doug Fister vs. RHP CC Sabathia
Sunday, Sept. 20 — RHP Ian Snell vs. RHP Joba Chamberlain
Monday, Sept. 21 — Off Day
