It never fails. Just one game into the season, Gardy's looking to get playing time for everyone, which means that Ben Revere makes the start and Ryan Doumit is on the bench. At least this likely means that Doumit is the primary lefthanded pinch-hitter tonight, instead of Sean Burroughs. Oh, and Revere's in right field, so watch the Orioles go first-to-third at will.

The Orioles have an interesting lineup themselves, in that Nick Johnson is playing first base and Ronny Paulino (their backup catcher) is their DH. I suppose either Buck Showalter is pulling a Gardy in letting Johnson get an early start as well, or he just feels that Johnson will be the lesser evil versus a lefty, compared to Chris Davis (both lefthanded hitters).
