Former Rangers starter Vicente Padilla will be the starting pitcher on Opening Day for the Los Angeles Dodgers, manager Joe Torre said Thursday.
Torre's explanation: "We just had to pick somebody, and he was the one. Am I going to say he is better than the other guys? I can't do that. We just decided to line them up that way. ... Again, we have four guys where I think you can put their names in a hat and just take it out."
