Kei Igawa, the Yankees 2008 Opening Day starterBy
Relax, I’m talking about the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees. Even with more talented pitchers in the rotation, Igawa gets the nod on Opening Day because
he’s accomplished more at a higher level he simply lines up to pitch that day. Following Igawa in the rotation will be (in order) Steven White, Alan Horne, Darrell Rasner and Jeff Marquez. Sean Henn (2006) and Tyler Clippard (2007) were the last two Opening Day starters for the Yanks’ Triple-A affiliate, so it’s probably a good thing to keep the talented guys away from that bad juju.
Sucks the game got rained out, huh?
