4/6/2012: OPENING DAY - Orioles vs. Twins

Recommended Posts

Why? Johnson hits lefties better than Betemit does. It makes more sense this way.

Reimold should almost always be starting over Chavez, especially on Opening Day.

What do you do with your time now that you won't be manning the OH seat at OPACY? Doing PBP here? You need to write a book like Boy Howdy - maybe one about message board mania - ya know - JTrea, atomic, oldfan, etc. Bring us the personalities that make this MB tick..

Good question! I'm not really sure yet. Just watching the games on TV (or not watching them) like everyone else, I guess. I may be writing an occasional recap for Camden Chat, but not every day. I'll have a lot more free time this year, that's for sure.

Baby Nolan swinging for the fences for AAA-Norfolk in 2009 before he came up. :)

I didn't realize that Johnson hits lefties better than Betemit. Are we to expect Betemit to see righties more often than Johnson does? If healthy, I'd prefer to go with Johnson over Betemit. Take advantage of his bat before he goes on the DL.

Not worried about Reimold starting. But we know he'll start the next two games, that's why I said to a lesser extent.

BTW, where'd you see that lefties were starting on Saturday and Sunday? I thought it was Liriano (a lefty) on Saturday and Liam Hendriks (a righty) on Sunday.

Can't wait to watch Willingham or Doumit try to field the ball in the OF

When I watched this live, I laughed just about the most I've ever laughed at anything, especially baseball-related.

You are correct according to MLB.com. I hadn't seen the probables listed and was going by a depth chart that had Duensing listed third.

O's Extra is blacked out for some odd reason for me. I am pretty pissed off by this. If for some stupid reason the game is blacked out I may lose it.

    • o   Diamondbacks starting pitcher Merrill Kelly was originally drafted out of high school by the Orioles, in the 37th round of the 2007 MLB draft. He opted for college instead (Yavapai Community College), and was drafted by the Indians in the 22nd round 2 years later in 2009 ........ but he again opted not to sign to remain in college, this time transferring from Yavapai Community to Arizona State.  One year after that (2010) he was drafted by the D-Rays in the 8th round, this time signing for a $125,000 bonus.

    • Here are the current standings... updated after Monday's (7/22) games: Win % is the key, not Games Back.  The O's have reclaimed the #1 pick, as of now.
    • We made too many mistakes on defense and couldn't cash in some early opportunities.
    • Not blaming them at all. I understand why they moved on from him. Some guys just take a little longer to figure it out. He was also snakebit by having to play in Norfolk too.
