Clint Hurdle makes it official: Erik Bedard will start opening day, April 5 vs. Philadelphia.
— Dejan Kovacevic. Kovacevic initially reported the Opening Day starter would be Jeff Karstens, and Tom Singer speculated yesterday that it would be Kevin Correia. Not the best moment for the Pitttsburgh media, but hey, in this 24/7 world, we all have our bad days. Anyway, Bedard seems like the best choice.
