Erik Bedard, LH Darrell Rasner, RH (0-1, 11.57) (0-0, -.--)

Maybe pitch around A-Rod? I dunno -- dude is killing the ball so far this season.

Yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone.

Erik Bedard gets a chance to get his season in gear after an iffy first start on Opening Day. It happens, you know? And really, I didn't think Bedard was all THAT bad. He never seemed comfortable or in a rhythm, but the two homers he gave up were back-to-back and just two really bad pitches. You have to minimize those, obviously. I'm a real scientist. He'll be fine. I'm not worried about BUH DARD.

Darrell Rasner isn't quite the scrub some of y'all are making him out to be, though, so don't get too excited. He's a talented guy that idiot Jim Bowden put on waivers. He had a 2.78 ERA in 10 starts at Columbus last year before coming up and doing well with the Yankees over six appearances (three starts) -- 4.43/1.13 in 20 innings. He's a sinker/slider guy that could be a back-end rotation filler for a long time if he stays healthy. His 2006 was shut down thanks to shoulder soreness shortly after he arrived in the bigs.
