Predicting Stats For Baltimore Orioles’ 2014 Opening Day Lineup

Predicting the Stats for the Baltimore Orioles' Opening Day Lineup

Orioles Lineup
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Opening Day is now less than two weeks away, and that means it's time for some predictions, while we don't know the lineup that Buck Showalter will use on March 31 against the Boston Red Sox, we do have a pretty good idea of which players will be starting the majority of the Orioles' games this season. Baltimore had one of the strongest lineups in baseball last season, and there’s no arguing that will once again be the case in 2014.
