Braves Opening Day Starting Pitcher


 

Throughout the past 10 years the Atlanta Braves have started six different pitchers on the mound on opening day.  This year they could have another guy on the mound for the first time with Kris Medlen or they could go with experience in Tim Hudson.  Neither have shown this spring that they want to be the opening day starter with the lines they’ve put up.  Hudson having a worse spring then Medlen but both have not had ace stats.  It’s obvious the Braves won’t have a clear #1 and instead be a “rotation team”.  If one impresses the other over the next two weeks, they could win the job.

    Meds will get that start followed I hope by Minor, Hudson, Maholm and Teheran. Meds was sharp against the Astros painting the corners like he used to. He’s really the only choice as Huddy admits he’s not close to ready yet and Minor isn’t that guy quite yet.
