Rare off-days are welcome sights
SEATTLE -- After the series-opener in Japan, the travels didn't stop for the Mariners. Entering Friday's contest with the Dodgers at Safeco Field, Seattle had played the most road games in the Major Leagues (37).

With all that travel, off-days become even more important, said manager Eric Wedge.

"A true day off in general is a big deal to begin with," Wedge said, "but when you've had the travel that we've had, when you've been on the road as much as we've had, all the more."

The Mariners had a day off Thursday, but because of travel, they didn't return to Seattle until late Wednesday night. Wedge said having a day off on Monday as well is nice for the players, because there is no travel involved. The club's next day off after that is June 21.
