Jeremy Guthrie will try to calm the worries of Orioles fans as he takes the mound today against Ricky Nolasco of the Marlins. Guthrie got torched in his last start, giving up 6 runs on 7 hits and 3 walks in 3 innings. He's been up and down this spring (it's only Spring Training is what I keep telling myself, but sometimes it just doesn't help).
Today's game is being broadcast by both the Marlins radio network, WAXY-790, and the Orioles radio network, 105.7 The FAN. Both are on Gameday Audio and one will be broadcast on XM183 (I'm guessing the Marlins feed since that's the home team)
|Nolan Reimold - DH||Chris Coghlan - LF|

|Miguel Tejada - 3B||Jorge Cantu - 3B|
|Luke Scott - LF||Dan Uggla - 2B|
|Matt Wieters - C||Cody Ross - RF|
|Garrett Atkins - 1B||Gaby Sanchez - 1B|
|Ty Wigginton - 2B||Brett Hayes - C|
|Cesar Izturis - SS||Ricky Nolasco - RHP|
You know, I'm not mad at this lineup. If the Orioles are going to start the season with Roberts on the bench they could do a lot worse than Nolan Reimold in the leadoff spot, even if he is kinda gimpy. I'm not crazy about Tejada at cleanup but I'd rather see him there than Izturis leading off, and personally I'd swap Wieters and Scott but it hardly makes a difference.
Ugh, I am analyzing ST lineups. Thank goodness we're only two weeks from Opening Day.
Let's Go O's!
