The O's don't play until tomorrow, but there are six games today that you might be interested in checking out. Remember Extra Innings always does a free preview the first week of the season. Here are today's matchups:

Braves @ Nationals, 1:05 (MASN)
Derek Lowe vs. Livan Hernandez
Lowe vs. Hernandez? What is this, Opening Day 2004?

Tigers @ Yankees, 1:05 (ESPN )
Justin Verlander vs. CC Sabathia

Brewers @ Reds, 2:10 
Yovani Gallardo vs. Edinson Volquez
Remember that one year when Volquez was good? 

Angels @ Royals, 4:10 
Jered Weaver vs. Luke Hochevar
I know that we might not be able to mock the Royals for much longer given their minor league system, so let me do it while I still can. Their starting rotation is Hochevar, Jeff Francis, Kyle Davies, and Bruce Chen. They don't have a 5th starter according to their depth chart. That's a whole lotta suck without much potential at all. 

Padres @ Cardinals, 4:15 (ESPN)
Tim Stauffer vs. Chris Carpenter
Who is Tim Stauffer? The NL West is a mystery to me because I have an AL and east coast bias. 

Giants @ Dodgers, 8:00 (ESPN)
Tim Lincecum vs. Clayton Kershaw
