Orioles vs Blue Jays lineups and game preview for 9/25

This guy is your starting centerfielder tonight. - Derick Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

It's the all-barf lineup in honor of officially being out of playoff contention.

The Orioles have officially been eliminated from playoff contention and they are on a six-game losing streak. Will they win one more to clinch a winning season? The odds are in their favor but they're not playing like a team interested in getting win #82.

Lineups

Orioles

1. Nate McLouth (L) LF
2. J.J. Hardy (R) SS
3. Nick Markakis (L) RF
4. Chris Davis (L) DH
5. Steve Pearce (R) 1B
6. Jason Pridie (L) CF
8. Jonathan Schoop (R) 2B
9. Ryan Flaherty (L) 3B

That is an eliminated-from-the-postseason lineup if ever I saw one. Team Steve makes up two-ninths of the lineup and Jason Pridie will be making his Orioles debut, and Jonathan Schoop will be making his major-league debut. That's kind of exciting! Adam Jones and Matt Wieters are given the day off, but don't worry! Nick Markakis is in the three-hole.

Blue Jays

1. Jose Reyes (S) SS
3. Brett Lawrie (R) 3B
4. Adam Lind (L) 1B
5. Rajai Davis (R) RF
6. Anthony Gose (L) CF
7. Josh Thole (L) C
8. Ryan Goins (L) 2B
9. Kevin Pillar (R) LF

Starting Pitchers

Bud Norris is on the mound for the Orioles. When last we saw Bud he was giving up the losing run in that eighteen-inning game down in Tampa Bay. Poor Bud has had to come in to pitch in relief twice in those situations. He hasn't made a start since September 8th against the White Sox, so who knows what we'll get from him tonight.

Esmil Rogers will pitch for the Blue Jays. He's been mostly a relief pitcher this season and has faced the Orioles four times, one of which was a start. He's just the kind of guy a losing team sends out there at the end of the year. You know, not really good enough to always be a starting pitcher, but decent enough once you've stopped caring.
