3/22 Sveum to name Opening Day starter Friday
Dale Sveum said he’ll name the Cubs Opening Day starter on Friday. The Cubs open the season April 5 against the Nationals at Wrigley Field and have named Stephen Strasburg their starter. Did that influence Sveum’s decision?
“Maybe,” Sveum said.
Sveum will likely chose between Ryan Dempster and Matt Garza, who started on Thursday against the Rangers.
