Shields Will Be Opening Day Starter

Joe Maddon hardly surprised anybody when he made named James Shields as the Rays’ Opening Day starter.

The Rays manager said he based his decision on Shields’ body of work last season, just as he had the when he named David Price the Opening Day starter in 2011.  This will be Shields’ fourth Opening Day assignment.

I’ll have more later when after I talk to Shields.
