Opening day and only one starter going (Sale). It's also strange to only have one team this year.

I love Mauer batting 2nd. No more of 'play 2nd bat 2nd' regardless of how bad you are. Of course it's still going to be a painful season as a Twins fan. worley is the opening day starter. diamond is a couple of weeks away and Corriea/Pelfrey are next. okay and okay followed by yuk, yuk and yuk.

I like Mauer batting in the 2 hole also. If Hicks can get on base at a decent clip then Willingham/Morneau could post some nice numbers.

I just looked through the opening day lineups and Placido Polonco is batting cleanup for Miami. Has there ever been a worse opening day cleanup hitter?

For those who have hopes for Hicks, nice to see him batting leadoff on Opening Day. Also like seeing Aoki leadoff as an owner, and Rutledge in the 2-hole for the Rox. Ludwick could give nice value if he regularly splits the righties up and bats 4th, as he is today.

Cameron Maybin batting 7th is yeesh. Not good news, considering how bad that lineup is.

He's played in the majors something like 37 years and never once hit cleanup in a starting lineup.

I absolutely adore the Yankees' opening-day lineup. Looks like some sort of sick April Fool's joke come true.

Should be a really interesting year for me. I only have my dynasty league this year, and it's going to be a challenge. After several good years, I' trying to make the transition to getting younger. My pitching staff is chalk full of rookies and young guys, so let's see how it goes! First up, Chris Sale! Show me what you can do!

Somehow I missed that memo. O:-)

Agree about Ichiro too. Just weird. :-S

I have King Felix and Gallardo going in my $$ keeper. Shields, Kennedy and Niese going in my $$ Yahoo pro. Here's hoping for a hot start. Good luck everyone. B-)
