Ha. There you have it!
Maholm gets the home opener, but its a pretty dismal state of affairs, what?
From the link above:
Hurdle also set the rotation order, which is as follows: Correia, Maholm, Ross Ohlendorf, Charlie Morton and James McDonald.
So, the Pirates take on the Cubs, and Ryan Dempster/Matt Garza/Carlos Zambrano with Kevin Correia/Paul Maholm/Ross Ohlendorf. I mean, what could go wrong here?
That, however, means that Charlie Morton and James McDonald are going to take on the No. 4 and No. 5 in the Cardinals rotation. So, Jaime Garcia? Kyle McClellan?
Edited to add: There's a thread up at OBN that makes the good point that "We'll be talking about this 10 years from now as to how we went from Correja to Tallion/Heredia as far as Opening Day starters go." I hope so, and this made me think of Gerrit Cole just a bit more.
