Your 2011 Baltimore Orioles

Final cuts were made today and the roster is set. It's partially the anticipation for the new season, I'm sure, but this lineup really doesn't look half bad. I'm sure I'll be singing a different tune as the season wears on. But for now, hope!

Starting Lineup


Matt Wieters

Catcher

Derrek Lee
First Base

Brian Roberts
Second Base

Mark Reynolds
Third Base

J.J. Hardy
Shortstop

Luke Scott
Left Field

Adam Jones
Centerfield

Nick Markakis
Right Field

Vladimir Guerrero
Designated Hitter

The starting nine are mostly full of smiles. They're confident in their teammates and in the new-and-improved lineup. Well, maybe not Matt Wieters. His face shows that he's concerned about not living up to his hype and he's also thinking very hard about his pitchers. Brian Roberts says, "Look at my boyish grin, would I lie to you? Of course my back feels fine." Luke Scott is thrilled to be back in the field after two years of DH'ing. Adam Jones wonders if all the ladies are noticing his bedroom eyes, and Vlad is just happy that somebody wanted him.

Bench


Robert Andino
2B/SS/3B

Felix Pie
Outfield

Jake Fox
C/1B/3B

Cesar Izturis
2B/SS

The bench is generally a happy bunch, and why not? Izzy can't believe he got someone to pay him over $1M after the way he hit last season. Jake Fox would like you to look deep into his eyes and forget all about his sub-.300 OBP, and Robert Andino would like Nick Green and Brendan Harris to respectfully shove it. Only Felix doesn't look that happy. I'm betting he's sad he lost his starting job and frustrated that his rap album was never released.

Starting Rotation


Jeremy
Guthrie

Brian
Matusz

Brad
Bergesen

Jake
Arrieta

Chris
Tillman

Jeremy Guthrie: Back at the top where I belong. Kevin Millwood. What were they thinking?
Brian Matusz: Maybe if I grow this scruff on my face people will stop telling me I look twelve years old.
Brad Bergesen: Please no more line drives please no more line drives.
Jake Arrieta: I am SO handsome. Has there ever been anyone another Oriole as handsome as me?
Chris Tillman: I'd like to thank Andrew_G for always believing in me. We're in this together, buddy!

Bullpen


Kevin
Gregg

Koji
Uehara

Mike
Gonzalez

Josh
Rupe

Jim
Johnson

Jeremy
Accardo

Jason
Berken

Could these guys be any sadder? Only Koji is immune to the bullpen doldrums, although he does feel a little sad that it'll be tougher for his sideburns to become a cult icon if he's not closing. Accardo is trying to smile, but nobody is buying it. Mike Gonzalez says, "Hey guys, I really don't suck. I'm sorry I lied about that thing last year. Please don't hate me." And Josh Rupe, while thrilled to have made the team, wishes everyone would stop acting like children about what his last name rhymes with.
