For the Seattle Mariners, the more things change, the more they stay the same. 

After playing through an eventful and at times entertaining April schedule, the Mariners seem to be fighting some leftover demons from last year, especially at the plate. 

In losing four of five contests to the Yankees and Red Sox on their current road trip, the M's now head to Cleveland in hopes of righting the ship by sending Felix Hernandez to the mound.
