Opening day starter: not Felix
From the Everett Herald:
“To keep him healthy, we’re going to have to monitor his innings,” Hargrove said. “I can tell you he will not be the opening-day starter. If he were 23 years old, he probably would be.”
Okay, sure, then… who?
“We have some legitimate candidates,” Hargrove said, being as vague as usual. “Jamie Moyer, Jarrod Washburn, Joel Pineiro. I’ll probably have a pretty good idea who it will be the second week of camp, but I won’t announce anything until the last week.”
Washburn… sure. If you’re going to pay a #4 guy #1 money, why not pitch him #1, right? Take that beater to the car show, whatever.
But Pineiro? What?
