My friend Kasey is the queen of baseball themed link ups. And, well, baseball themed linkups are pretty much the only linkups I do. Her 7th Inning Stretch linkup has prompts every third Thursday of months baseball is played in (which, hey guys, that’s a random day to pick).
Today’s prompt was to pick my fantasy team. Guys, this was really easy:
- Catcher | Caleb Joseph, Baltimore Orioles (you know, cause Matt Wieters is injured) (and cause I like Caleb)
- 1st Base | Chris Davis, Baltimore Orioles
- 2nd Base | Jonathan Schoop, Baltimore Orioles
- Shortstop | J.J. Hardy, Baltimore Orioles
- 3rd Base | Manny Machado, Baltimore Orioles
- Right Field | Nick Markakis, Atlanta Braves
- Center Field | Adam Jones, Baltimore Orioles
- Left Field | Steve Pearce, Baltimore Orioles
- DH | Nelson Cruz, Seattle Mariners
- Starting Pitcher | Chris Tillman, Baltimore Orioles
- In Relief | Kevin Gausman, Baltimore Orioles and Andrew Miller, New York Yankees
- Closer | Darren O’Day, Baltimore Orioles
Oh, what’s that? That’s the 2014 Baltimore Orioles AL East Championship Roster? Oh, I suppose it is. What can I say? I’d love to have a postseason even more beautiful than 2014’s this year… AL Pennant here we come!
Like I’ve said, the Orioles are my first true love.
