Toronto Blue Jays (Estrada) at Baltimore Orioles (Gausman), 3:05 p.m. ET

A rematch of last year's Game When Zach Britton Didn't Pitch, the Orioles are looking for Gausman to develop into an ace-level starter as he makes his first Opening Day start. He pitched a lot like one in the second half last year, going 8-6 with a 3.10 ERA after the All-Star break. One key was throwing his splitter a little more often, a pitch batters hit just .182 against with a 43 percent strikeout rate. With Chris Tillman starting the season on the DL and a shaky rotation otherwise, the Orioles need good halves from Gausman.

Prediction: Orioles 3, Blue Jays 2. Zach Britton with the save.

Jones batting second, and Kim batting 7th

I might be inclined to flip them, but Buck doesn't like to have 2 LH'ers batting back to back and I don't think he has really bought into Kim being the best OBP guy on the roster.

Another opening day. My 53rd as a fan. Manny Davis and Trumbo are going deep today.

How many as player/coach?

What does that mean? Have you been in my stash?

LOL - just thought you left a pregnant reply - 53 as fan as if there were something more.  You could be 73 and played perhaps at 20 - back then not such a big deal right?  ;-)  And you did not say "straight"  (oops that might be getting onto your "stash").  Maybe a few as player or coach???
