Orioles vs. Red Sox spring training game thread

Prepare for an ESPN Red Sox love fest as the Orioles head towards the end of spring training. At least it’ll be most of a real lineup.

MLB: Spring Training-Baltimore Orioles at New York Yankees Jonathan Dyer-USA TODAY Sports

There are just four more spring training games remaining before the Orioles head north. One of them comes this afternoon. If you can get to a television with ESPN, you can watch the game there, or on MLB.tv - though be aware that the game is against the Red Sox and the usual level or worse of slobbering should be expected.

The game is also on either Orioles or Red Sox radio, if you can get to either of those instead.

The Orioles brought most, if not quite all, of a very real-looking lineup:

  1. Joey Rickard - LF
  2. J.J. Hardy - SS
  3. Manny Machado - 3B
  4. Mark Trumbo - DH
  5. Chris Davis - 1B
  6. Jonathan Schoop - 2B
  7. Welington Castillo - C
  8. Trey Mancini - RF
  9. Craig Gentry - CF

Tyler Wilson is the starting pitcher. He is auditioning for either the fifth starter spot or a long relief role in the bullpen. Possibly both! And if he gets torched, he might well get neither.

Others expected to pitch today are Vidal Nuno and Logan Verrett.
