Can you name every opening day lineup since 1990? I got 171 out of 180. I won't name the guys I missed so I don't spoil it for you.

2000-2010, yes I can probably do them all. Anything prior to that, no way.

This was posted in the ORG a while back and I remember I missed one of the opening day outfielders in 2009, a game I was at. Oh, how the times have changed for the better in even the past couple of years.

168.

I missed a bunch of scrubs, basically.

(My wife basically told me how ridiculous it was that I knew all of those guys while I was typing. I showed her camisa's post and told her I wasn't alone.)

The only recent guy (past 5 years) I missed was Keppinger. It took me a while to get Darnell McDonald as the opening day CF.

Kevin Mitchell, Ron Gant, Mariano Duncan, and Tom Browning were the only "good" guys that I missed.

What a difference a year makes.

I missed both of those guys. I did very well on the early and late '90s lineups, but I wasn't as good on the past decade, which surprised me. I guess it's because there are so many more names I want to forget from the past decade.

I did horrible; just blanked out on some obvious ones (Dave Ross, Chris Sabo -- I almost feel like I should have to give my fan card back) while getting some of the more obscure ones like Bichette and Joey Hamilton.

I got Joey Hamilton only because I typed 'Hamilton' for Josh Hamilton.

I got around 172 of the 180 correct. I missed guys like Milligan, Roberts, and Fernandez.

Milligan is one of the ones I missed. If I was given 10 days to guess him, I don't think I could have done it.

Geez, missed the opening day pitcher for about 4 years in a row. Good Lord, those guys were bad. Joey Hamilton, Jimmy Haynes, Cory Lidle (RIP), and Paul Wilson.
