Oh' date=' I think Buck plays Davis, but what do you think about that decision?[/quote']

I think it's the right one. I'd imagine the plan at the beginning of the season was to limit ABs for Snider and De Aza against lefties. It's game 4, I wouldn't abandon that plan despite how well those two did in Tampa.

No problem sitting Snider and going with Davis. Of course, They might both play and De Sza sits. Don't be shocked to see Delmon Young in RF.

I think Young will play OF more than most people on here do. But I'd be surprised if he played there today. Who would DH?

Davis needs to hear some cheers and see as many pitches as possible.

This won't happen, but:

Cabrera LF

Pearce RF

Young DH

Davis 1B

Between the two Lefties, I'd rather have De Aza in the line-up than Flaherty. But with Norris' ground ball rate, I can understand the desire to put our best defenders at SS/2B. Ah, it'll be interesting to see what happens.

Roch had this to say today:

Delmon Young figures to be the designated hitter today. He's 21-for-50 (.420) with two doubles, four home runs and nine RBIs against Buehrle. Center fielder Adam Jones is 11-for-31 with two doubles, a home run and five RBIs. Jonathan Schoop is 3-for-8 (.375) with a double and home run.

Ryan Lavarnway is 3-for-6 with a double. Caleb Joseph is 2-for-4 with a home run. Steve Pearce is 2-for-5 with two doubles. Everth Cabrera is 3-for-4.

You may have noticed that the current Orioles hit Buehrle. They're .398/.430/.633 against him.

Travis Snider is 2-for-3, but he may sit against a left-hander, with Pearce playing right field in his place.

I think we see Snider sit out today. They could also sit out De Aza, but I think they go with Pearce in RF.

Cabrera over Flaherty at SS?

If Buck doesn't have Cabrera in today's lineup, then Everth better get used to it being a long season on the bench in Baltimore.

There's little reason to believe Davis won't be in the lineup today for both sentimental and practical reasons. Even if it is a left hander, Buck's not going to go that route with him until later on in the season if he's really struggling. Four games in, and the third game for Davis he's not going to do it.

AJ had some good words to say about Snider today in Roch's column:

"We're professionals, so we have to figure out how to play with each other," Jones said yesterday before the workout. "Obviously, I have to know his range and his speed. He can cover a lot of ground. I didn't realize how fast he is and how much ground he covers. "You see we had a little synchronized tumble the other night. It was pretty funny. We both didn't know that we had both tumbled, which was pretty cool. But he's aggressive out there and I told him to be aggressive. Don't mind me. If you think you have a beat on the ball, don't be afraid of it. And we put in the time, so I think we have pretty good communication."
