    + P Braden Shipley and (in no particular order) Andrew Chafin, Scott Rice, Steve Hathaway, Zac Curtis, Randll Delgado, Kaleb Fleck, Joey Krehbiel and Matt Stites.

Delgado, Fleck, Krehbiel and Stites sounds like the name of a particularly experienced and aggressive law-firm. If the pitching staff here is, with obvious exceptions in Chafin and Delgado, generally comprised of players who will be watching our first game on TV, the same can't be said for the batting order. Segura over Gosselin, flip the top two around and (obviously) drop the designated hitter, and you have a credible Opening Day line-up, though that would depend on A.J. Pollock also not being healthy. He says he is, but I'll believe that one when we see him in front of a paying audience - hopefully, tomorrow night at Chase Field.

No local coverage on this one though, so you're on your own.
