Seattle Mariners Return From Japan And They've Brought Jet Lag Back With Them

The Seattle Mariners have returned from Japan with a 1-1 record following their season-opening series against the Oakland Athletics. Both teams are now back in the exhibition game swing until Spring Training wraps up for the rest of MLB.

For the time being, the M's are dealing with the stresses of jet lag following their transcontinental flights, according to Larry LaRue of the Tacoma News Tribune.

"We tried to keep them awake for awhile when we got here, advised them to stay awake into the evening and then try to get a good night's sleep," manager Eric Wedge said.

"That said, we're all feeling it today. We'll be better with another night of sleep."

Miguel Olivo said he'd gone to sleep at 10 p.m. on Friday night.

"Then I woke up at 2:45 a.m. and didn't get back to sleep until 5 a.m.," he said. "I woke up again at 7 a.m. and said 'The heck with it,' and got up."

The jet lag obviously didn't affect the players too deeply, as they were able to pick up an easy 6-1 win over a San Diego Padres split squad on Saturday.
