Dempster to start on opening day

Zambrano will not start on April 1st.

Not a joke.

Yes, the Mike Quade has decided to take a different direction and use Ryan Dempster as the opening day starter.

Dempster has been the Cubs most consistent pitcher the last 3 years.  I think this is a good move. While Zambrano has made some very good opening day starts, he's had his fair share of really bad ones as well.

For those of you who thought that Matt Garza deserves the honor...let's wait a year and see what this kid has got before crowning him.
