New York at Baltimore

2 units on Baltimore -113 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: LOSS

The Marlins will make the 90 minute trip south to meet up with the Orioles. The Marlins played at home yesterday, and as is typical, the veterans will not make the trip. They used 4 pitchers yesterday that were with the team last season, which means the breakdown after Sergio Mitre completes his 2 innings will be comprised of mostly pitchers, that weren't even in the majors last season. We also note that the starters were responsible for all 6 hits the Marlins got yesterday, as they did not get a single hit in the last 3 innings. That means this travel squad, is mostly made up from the remainder, that did not even get a hit yesterday. Since this is Baltimore's first game, their projected opening day pitcher, Adam Loewen will get the first 2 innings, and Dave Trembley has said the position players will play 5 innings, and try to get them 2 at bats. Have to give the nod to the O's here at basically even odds, playing with starters for half the game, a better starter for the first 2 innings, and more frontline bullpen pitchers to follow, since the Marlins played yesterday and used some that won't pitch today.
