Let's talk about THIS for a second.

Here is tonight's lineup:

Yes, that is a 1B next to Nick Markakis' name, and it's not a typo. From Britt Ghiroli:

Yes, Nick Markakis is at first base, first time ever. He had been stating his case to Showalter since Lee went on the DL. Guess it worked

I mean...what on earth? I guess this is a way to keep Reimold, Pie, and Luke Scott in the lineup with Vladimir Guerrero getting the day off, but still. It's just weird. First base has been ridiculous for the Orioles for far too long. That's why I say they should just sign Prince Fielder next year and be done with it.
