The Baltimore Orioles lost 115 games last season and that was before they began totally rebuilding. This year, they might be even worse.

Baltimore is in the process of trying to restock its farm system and build for the future. In the meantime, the present is very, very bleak.

The Orioles are in New York today for Opening Day against the Yankees. Let's just say the two teams are fielding much different looking starting lineups.

In fact, search "orioles lineup" on Twitter and you are bound to come up with tweets like the ones below about the group of mostly unknowns that Baltimore is rolling out there.

Some of these dudes sound like random generated names in a video game.

As you might expect, Baltimore is already down 4-1 in the bottom of the fourth inning. The Yankees jumped out 3-0 in the bottom of the first after the Orioles' top half of the inning ended when a batted ball hit a base runner for the third out.

It is going to be a long season in Birdland.
