Eighth time’s the charm? We’ll see...

Diamondbacks line-up

  1. Starling Marte, CF
  2. Ketel Marte, 2B
  3. Eduardo Escobar, 3B
  4. David Peralta, LF
  5. Christian Walker, 1B
  6. Jon Jay, RF
  7. Nick Ahmed, SS
  8. Carson Kelly, C
  9. Seth Beer, DH
    + LHP Madison Bumgarner, LHP Alex Young, RHP Archie Bradley, RHP Mauricio Cabrera, RHP Damien Magnifico

It is a literal Marte Party at the top of the Diamondbacks’ line-up, and with the possible exception of right-field (and of course, the Satanic concoction which is the designated hitter), this could well end up being what we see on Opening Day. Though that may depend on how we are facing. Does this mean that Kelly is going to become MadBum’s personal catcher? Bumgarner doesn’t seem too concerned, but as the designated “ace” [not least in salary terms!], he’ll certainly have first pick of catchers.

This one is on Fox Sports Arizona, so we’ll get to see how things unfold, and how Madison fares in his second start. Maybe a win? I may have to find another medieval painter if not, because I’m almost out of Heironymus Bosch works...
