Happy home opener

It isn’t exactly going to be tropical, but it’s shaping up to be a sun-soaked day for the home opener. As Fernando Rodney pointed out, if you’re from Detroit, you probably don’t need a heavy jacket today.

With lefty Matt Harrison slated to pitch for Texas on Saturday, Jim Leyland decided to get Jeff Larish the start today rather than wait until Sunday. Larish is the DH. Other than that, it’s a pretty standard lineup.
