Blue Jays @ Orioles

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

It is finally here. Opening Day. Real Baseball.

We should have a prize for the best Zach Britton joke.

So there are a couple of bits of news:

  • Ross Atkins says that Roberto Osuna, on the DL with a sore neck, will only be out the 10 days.
  • Gibby says that Pearce is at first and Carerra is in left because Estrada is a fly ball pitcher.
  • Pompey should be back on the field 'within weeks'. That worries me.
  • Aaron Sanchez will make his first start of the season, Jays game five.

And:
