john smoltz has messed up his last two openers.

April 4 2006 @ LAD 5ER in 5IP

April 5 2005 @ FL 6ER in 1.2IP


this year he opens at philly against myers. i dont think i'd want to bet on it happening three times though.

Santana is a notoriously slow starter. Watch out for my Orioles.

I avoid sitting an ace. I think pitchers are more ready around this time of the year than hitters are anyway.

Although I NEVER start pitchers at COL. No matter who it is.


I have 5 starters going Monday. Would you start them all and sit a closer?
Sheets vs LAD
Kazmir vs NYY
CC vs CHW
Bedard vs MIN
Patterson vs FLA

Santana always starts slow. Which makes the rest of his numbers even more impressive.
