The Baltimore Orioles are looking to make a run in the AL East or at least trying to improve on their past seasons. Last year the Orioles finished dead last in the AL East with a 64-98 record, worse than their 2008 season. Already this season they started off losers by not signing Matt Holliday and letting go long-time third baseman Melvin Mora.

However, they did sign Miguel Tejada and Kevin Millwood and have a group of youngsters that could put pressure on, well the Blue Jays. Here’s what I think the lineup may look like.

C: Matt Wieters
1B: Garrett Atkins
2B: Brian Roberts
3B: Miguel Tejada
SS Cesar Izturis
LF: Felix Pie
CF: Adam Jones
RF: Nick Markakis
DH: Nolan Reimold

SP: Kevin Millwood
SP: Jeremy Guthrie
SP: Brian Matusz
SP: Brad Bergeson
SP: Chris Tillman
CP: Mike Gonzalez
