Guthrie named Opening Day Starter
The O's finally got it right.
After teasing fans with rumors of sending Steve Trachsel out to the mound on Opening Day, the Orioles stepped back from the cliff they were about to jump off of and made the logical choice, naming Jeremy Guthrie the Opening Day starting pitcher instead.
Roy Firestone, who occasionally posts on the Orioles Hangout message forum, had this to say about Guthrie, and it's just an added bonus to see such a man get the chance to open up the 2008 season.
Congrats to Jeremy and good luck!
