Nick Markakis just sliced a single to left center field to drive in the first Orioles run of the season and give them a 1-0 lead over David Price and the Rays, but today is not going to be a particularly good Opening Day for the O's regardless of the outcome of tonight's game.
If you've been keeping up with Orioles Insider, you know that Brian Matusz has been scratched from tomorrow night's start with what appears to be an intercostal strain. That's usually not good, and it's not the only pitching question facing the Orioles as the season gets underway.
I'll expand on that in my column, which will be up on the Web site soon. I'll drop the link in here as soon as it lands.
