The Baltimore Orioles are currently 1-4 to start the season, yet Buck Showalter doesn’t like to change things around.
Baltimore Orioles Manager Buck Showalter is an old school type of manager and a creature of habit. He has his core players or his favorite players. Change is something that Showalter is not accustomed to. It takes him a while to make adjustments.
You would think since the Baltimore Orioles offense has been struggling to get hits and runs early on in the 2018 season that he’d change things up, like the lineup. But no, Showalter hasn’t done that.
Here is the lineup that would benefit the Baltimore Orioles right now to spark some offense going forward:

Most managers like to have the lefties and righties go back to back to make it so harder for teams when it comes to the bullpen, but something needs to be done to spark the Orioles offense.
Before scoring six runs on Tuesday night, the Orioles just managed six runs in the four games before Tuesday. Wouldn’t that make you want to change things around?
The offense wasn’t supposed to be the problem coming into the season, but it looks like the offense is stuck in the same funk it did in September of the 2017 season. The team is basically the same minus Mark Trumbo who is on the disabled list.
Having Tim Beckham lead off might give the team a spark which it desperately needs. If not, this team will likely be sellers at the trade deadline. Which would probably help the team in the long run and I was hoping they would’ve been in 2017.
Who would you rather bat at the top of the lineup if you had the chance to put it together?
