Davis not in the lineup. Smith at DH, Nunez at first.

Would rather see Davis than Smith, to be honest. Davis will have plenty of opportunities to be out of the lineup when Mountcastle is up.

Seeing NYY as -350 betting favorite on ESPN app. Not available at site I use (likely due to odds imbalance) 😳

Wow, -350 is insane for any MLB team. I don't think the Yankees should be -350 against the Marlins right now.

Bovada has them at -370! (O's still only +285 though, same as the sites that have the Yankees at +315).

I would rather two better players were on the roster 😁

Wojo appeared against the Yankees only once last year, on August 6.  He didn't fare particularly well, charged with five runs on six hits in four innings in a game the Orioles eventually lost, 9-4.

He did manage something that a lot of Oriole pitchers didn't last year, which was to hold Gleyber Torres in check.  Torres batted only twice in the game, popping up and striking out, before being removed due to an injured side.

He probably hurt himself swinging too hard, after having seen three Yankee batters hit home runs before he came to bat in that inning.

The least-hyped home opener in Orioles history ???

Almost certainly. Salient/interesting observation. 

A lot of teams could probably say that, particularly the ones who opened on the road (as the Orioles did.)

You'd probably have to go back to the WW-II seasons (1942-1945) to find something comparable in terms of minimal hype for season-opening games.

I remember Kelly Paris as an infielder with the O's in the 80s.  Hadn't realized he had passed away.

YES Network did a nice little piece on Mo Gaba on their pre-game show.

Thanks for the info, Bill.

I'll check it out on the rerun of the game, later tonight.

The first pitch was VERY emotional for me. ❤️

They honored some front line workers at Johns Hopkins. One of them threw out the first pitch and they had a bunch of them on the field.

    • We’d probably know a lot more right now if they’d actually played a season this year.    I’m hoping Tony can ferret out some honest information about what the guys who made it to Fall Instructs are showing.   
    • While having success at higher levels or the minor leagues or even in a taste of the big league is part of the evaluation process and lessens the risk profile of players, it is not the only criteria for placement on the list above another prospect. If you concerned over him being behind Kevin Smith, I'll tell you, I could have easily built a case for either to be above the other. They are very similar prospects as their scouting grades would show you. Smith gets the slight nod for being at more advance stage when he was 22 than Zimmermann was and for the the better slider command that gives him a better chance at his floor.
    • That’s not the way these guys get graded.   Yes you get some credit for how high you’ve gotten in the system, but ultimately the grades are about (1) your expected outcome, and (2) your ceiling.   Zimmermann has made it to the majors, which is great, but his most likely role is a swing man.   Other guys have more potential, if less certainty of reaching the majors.     That said, almost every guy on the list from no. 12 through no. 26 has been graded 45 FV/50 ceiling, so we are really splitting hairs here.   The only exceptions are Baumler and Mayo (both graded 50/60) who haven’t played beyond high school yet so there’s a lot of uncertainty there, and Hernaiz (45/55) who hasn’t played above the GCL.   Those are guys who could move up or down the list pretty significantly next year.     
    • A million for Tommy Milone? He’ll be lucky to get a minor league contract from someone. 
    • o   You better take a diamond ring ...... you better pawn it, babe.   o
    • The write up makes me think that he is not a starter that Hyde would want to rely on every 5th day.  Maybe more of a swingman.  So that makes it more likely the O's sign a Milone type to begin the season or maybe Milone himself if they can get him for a million for one year.
    • o   That's somewhat of a rare song in which Lennon and Harrison switched on and off for the lead and rhythm. Lennon essentially plays lead for the majority of the song, while Harrison strums the chords. Then for the lead guitar solo it's Harrison playing lead, while Lennon briefly strums the chords. Then at the end of the solo, Lennon goes back to (essentially) playing lead while Harrison strums the chords.   Somewhat similarly, in the song "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You" it's Lennon playing the dominant portion of the guitar (strumming/picking extremely fast) while Harrison strums the chords ...... the difference being that unlike the case with "All My Loving", there is no guitar solo in "I'm Happy Just to Dance with You."   o
