Report: Glavine, Not Pedro on Opening Day

New, comments

I'm sure we were all hoping to see Pedro Martinez mowing down Nats on Opening Day, but with his ailing toe and the whole Nike-gate (it's so easy to affix "gate" to anything serious or scandalous) thing, I'm not particularly surprised to see Petey's first start pushed back a little bit. He is scheduled to pitch on Thursday, April 6th, but may be pushed back even further to Saturday, April 8th, to allow him to start a (hopefully) warm-weather day game instead of a bitter cold night game. I suspect they will simply throw him in there as soon as he feels he is ready.
