First 2 Spots In Rotation Set

CC Sabathia will be pitching on opening day... shocker. It will be his 4th consecutive opening day start for the Yankees.

The one that shocked me was Hiroki Kuroda starting game #2. I know he was one of the two to be guaranteed a starting rotation spot but I am still in utter shock that he was essentially, whether directly or indirectly, named the Yankees #2 starter.

I know that Ivan Nova has easily had the worst spring as a Yankee but I am willing to ignore some of that and look at what he did last season. I can see a Kuroda pick over Phil Hughes but Michael Pineda too? I cannot say that I necessarily agree with this but hey... It's March right? A lot can change between then and when it REALLY matters.

Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
