LaRussa and Duncan announced the pitching lineup for the first 6 games. When I heard it reported on XM radio on my way to church, it was announced that Looper was the third starter and Reyes was the fifth starter. I almost ran off the road. After reading Derrick Gould’s article, I realize the order was based on matchups not the pecking order. Let’s say I let out a big sigh of relief.
