Shi Davidi reports that John Gibbons has named R.A. Dickey the Blue Jays Opening Day starter.

What, you were expecting Rickey Romero?

I like the announcement of Opening Day starters. Even in cases like this one where it seems pretty obvious who it will be.  Heck, even when Jim Leyland says that Justin Verlander will take the hill on Opening Day for Detroit, I’ll get an extra spring in my step.

Baseball is coming, folks.
