    Opening Day Starter?

    Simple question: Is it Harang? Does it depend on ST?

    If he doesn't get hurt then it's probably going to be Harang since Narron was telling Marty at one of the caravan stops that he was thinking about bringing Aaron back on Friday.

    Harang is definately the #1 starter on the Reds. He should get the nod on opening day.

    Actually, he shouldn't if you believe my "Opening Day Starter Jinx" theory.

    Look at the last several Opening Day starters we've had. Bad things happened to them. Some were injured, some were cut, some had bad years. Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.

    It's probably more of an inditement as to how bad our preceived #1 starter was than anything else. Bad things happen to bad starters.

    I really believe that Harang can will 18+ games for us this year. But he'll have to get better run support than last year.

    By coincidence here is a link to a post on this very same subject from another board. Warining R rated language used.

    PuffyPig said it: bad things happen to bad starters.

    Who was the last real quality starter to pitch for the Reds on opening day? Pete Harnisch? Denny Neagle? Jose Rijo? Mario Soto?

    Well, since we traded our opening day starter, Dave Burba, for Sean Casey et al, and then traded Casey for Williams, doesn't it stand to reason in Reds World that the opening day starter be Williams?
