Buck Showalter's posted his lineup tonight, as the Orioles host the Red Sox in a game that means the world to Boston and probably means something to Baltimore, too. Going against Red Sox starter Jon Lester:
No surprises here, as manager Buck Showalter has been going with most of these guys since Davis joined the Orioles in a deadline deal at the end of July.
As it happens, Davis might be the Orioles' worst hitter in this evening's lineup. While nobody on the roster has done brilliantly this season, virtually all of the regulars have been at least competent, and Baltimore's lousy record is due to pitching and an anemic bench rather than the every-day players. These guys might not be great, but they're not pushovers and the O's are seventh in the American League in scoring this season.
