This comes from the Baltimore Sun
It’s becoming more likely that Markakis starts in center field. And I heard again how the Orioles have grown disenchanted with Corey Patterson and would like to move him, though his contract and brief stay in the organization make it difficult.
Patterson came to the Orioles expecting to start in center field, but it looks like Markakis has moved ahead of him. Starting in left field today, Patterson couldn’t run down Carlos Delgado’s towering fly ball near the left field line, and it dropped in for a single.
