Francisco Liriano to start Opening Day

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

Not that it's any big deal, but Clint Hurdle has already decided Francisco Liriano will start Opening Day. Liriano is a perfectly worthy choice, of course, and the Pirates could also have picked Gerrit Cole, which would have been fine too. It's nice to have good options like these -- we've come a long way from the days of Ron Villone (Opening Day starter 2002) and Kevin Correia (Opening Day starter 2011).
