Yankees vs. Orioles: Lineups

By Jon Lane
It’s Opening Day – finally! The Yankees kick off in Baltimore, where weather permitting CC Sabathia will take on Jeremy Guthrie. Last I heard, it stopped raining there and the game is expected to be on time. YES airs its pregame show at 3 p.m. with first pitch shortly after four.

Over the weekend, I previewed the revamped Yankees. While many faces are new, the attitude remains the same: Win it all. Joe Auriemma also offers his American League predictions for 2009.
