Myers or Blanton for opener

More for you chewers to chew on, courtesy of Jim Salisbury. He's covering the beat today while I work on the season preview, and let's just say the poor guy picked a busy one. After Cole Hamels threw 64 pitches in four minor league innings and allowed 10 hits, three runs, one walk, five strikeouts, he said he felt good, but needed one more practice start. Rich Dubee said that either Joe Blanton or Brett Myers will start opening night April 5. Hamels is on track to pitch the fourth game of the regular season, in Colorado April 10.
