Opening Day lineup

February 05, 2011 | Paul Hoke

I sat down today, cup of coffee in hand, and picked up my copy of the every shrinking Baltimore Sun.  I looked at the headline at the top of Page One.  I’m going to paraphrase because I’m not sure of the exact wording, but it goes something like, “O’s set to add Vlad.”  I was elated.  I will be writing more on the Vlad Guerrero signing in a day or two, but I wanted to put down on paper, what I think the Opening Day lineup will look like…and I’m pretty fired up about it:

  1. Brian Roberts, 2B
  2. Nick Markakis, RF
  3. Adam Jones, CF
  4. Vladimir Guerrero, DH
  5. Derrick Lee, 1B
  6. Luke Scott, LF
  7. Mark Reynolds, 3B
  8. Matt Wieters, C
  9. J.J. Hardy, SS

Now, I know there are a few mixes and matches you could make, but on paper, that may be the most solid lineup the Orioles have put together in years.  Gonna be honest, my orange and black blood is starting to flow a little faster now.  Bring on the season, this could be fun.

Go Caps!!!!!!!!!!
