Marcum is the Man
The Opening day torch has officially been passed to Shaun Marcum.
As expected, the Blue Jays officially announced that Marcum won the Opening Day starting job and will face off against the Texas Rangers in their Home Opener just two weeks from today.
After a couple of impressive starts in Florida, Marcum was basically a no-brainer to win the coveted position of Opening Day starer.
Back in December, I plead my case for Shaun Marcum to become the new ace (and face) of the team Ever since then, he hasn’t disappointed one bit. While he doesn’t necessarily have the track record to be considered a “true ace”, I believe this is the season for Shaun Marcum to shine.
It’s definitely going to be weird not seeing Roy Halladay kick off the season, but I am very excited to see what Shaun Marcum can bring to the table is his first full year back since 2007.
