Opening Day Lineups for the Orioles and Rays

New, 25 comments

There's no Orioles until Tuesday, but here's some lineups to drool or agonize over.

I don't usually do a separate post with line-ups, but since they're out a day ahead of the game and we have no Orioles baseball to talk about until tomorrow, have at them:


Lineup

BALTIMORE ORIOLES TAMPA BAY RAYS
Nick Markakis - RF Desmond Jennings - CF
Manny Machado - 3B Sam Fuld - RF
Adam Jones - CF Ben Zobrist - 2B
Matt Wieters - C Evan Longoria - 3B
Chris Davis - 1B Matt Joyce - LF
J.J. Hardy - SS Yunel Escobar - SS
Nolan Reimold - LF James Loney - 1B
Steve Pearce - DH Jose Molina - C
Brian Roberts - 2B Kelly Johnson - DH

Jason Hammel is your Orioles starter against David Price of the Rays.

Machado batting second is the most surprising development.

I don't hate the Orioles lineup and when I look at that Rays lineup I almost feel a shred of confidence, which means I expect the Orioles to lose 9-1.

How are you feeling about the season opener?
