We have made it through Winter and are almost there everybody. We are just 11 days away from the Arizona Diamondbacks taking part in Opening Day of the 2015 Major League Baseball season against the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants at Chase Field.

Arizona has named Josh Collmenter their starting pitcher for opening day. Collmenter will go up against 2014 World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner to kick off the new baseball year.

Bumgarner, who is left-handed thrower, will face an Arizona Diamondbacks lineup with a mix of guys returning from injury as well as one new face on April 6. In the following slides are my predictions for what the Diamondbacks’ lineup will look like on glorious opening day and also how I expect the players to perform this season.
