Pirates Start Ryan Doumit at Catcher

Last night's game seems like it was interesting for all kinds of reasons. Unfortunately, I missed it - I was flying home while it was going on. I thought I might be able to catch some of it, but my flight got delayed, so I had to settle for a cool aerial view of the home opener at PETCO Park, which was going on while my plane was landing at the airport downtown. I'll hopefully be in the comment thread for the next game.

Anyway, one of the reasons the game was interesting was that Ryan Doumit started at catcher, even though the opposing starter was left-handed and Ronny Paulino pastes lefties. This actually doesn't surprise me a whole lot, and I suspect we're going to see a lot of Doumit and not so much of Paulino. Just a hunch.
