Getting confirmation

Manager Dave Trembley listed his starting rotation as follows: Kevin Millwood, Jeremy Guthrie, Brian Matusz, Brad Bergesen and David Hernandez.

Trembley also confirmed the following:

* Craig Tatum beat out Chad Moeller for the reserve spot behind Matt Wieters.

* Felix Pie will start in left field on Opening Day.

* Chris Tillman, Jake Arrieta, Troy Patton, Brandon Erbe and Alfredo Simon will be the starters at Triple-A Norfolk.

* Thursday's game against Tampa Bay in Port Charlotte will be split between Arrieta and Steve Johnson.

Trembley allowed Moeller to skip the last two games after breaking the news to the veteran catcher. The Orioles want him to stay in the organization, but will attempt to find another job for him by contacting other clubs.

Lots and lots of quotes are coming your way.
