Game 66 Open Thread: Phillies at Orioles

It's a battle in the Charm City between two lineups that are by definition lineups.

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Buck Showalter did some recent rearranging his major league roster to avoid some contractual issues with some of his players, furthering his philosophy that his team has a 40-man roster, rather than a 25-man. It's refreshing to see a manager who has a plan, at all, isn't it? Meanwhile, the Orioles are putting a few more bench players than usual out there,m while the Phillies are the Phillies.
