Feldman is your Opening Day starter

Scott Feldman is the unsurprising choice to be the Opening Day starter for the Astros.

He will be the 8th Opening Day starter since 1995, and the 5th in five years.

Feldman, at a career 51-56, joins Wandy Rodriguez (73-75), Pete Harnisch (28-31), Dave Roberts (34-41), Don Wilson (24-25), Mike Cuellar (18-19), Bob Bruce (35-37), Ken Johnson (30-50), and Turk Farrell (47-51), as the pitchers to start a Houston Opening Day with a sub-.500 career record. (Ed.: I thought that would be a shorter list).

So, Wins are a useless metric... unless they suit your hyperbolic-alarmist point? I see how it is.
