Okay, prior to this year, the Pirates had a position that had a different opening day starter every year from 2004-2008. The starter from 2008 started again this year, to give the position a little stability.

What position is that, and name the five different opening day starters at that position from 2004-2008.

Did you know it off hand? I didn't think most fans would get both Cota and Santiago in there!

I guessed on Cota just because he was the only viable option I could throw in there. I knew the rest. Maybe he came to me quicker because he was signed by the Reds shortly in spring training this year (I live in Cincinnati).

It wasn't as difficult of a question I thought it would be originally ... the only viable other position I could think off was RF but I realized Nady had started twice in a row. For the rest, there were a few mainstays, and I randomly remembered that Tike Redman had started twice in CF. Not fun things to remember, for sure.

I'm suprised it is only one position. I thought it was a trick question. I thought there were atleast 2 positions.

Good Job.

I did, indeed, underestimate the board.

Guess I gotta get tougher!

NOPE, but 1b, 3b, and RF did have FOUR different starters in the five years...

Going back those 5 years...
1B: Simon, Ward, Casey, LaRoche, LaRoche
2b: Hill, Castillo, Castillo, Castillo, Sanchez
3B: Stynes, Wigginton, Randa, Bautista, Bautista
SS: Wilson every year
RF: Wilson, Lawton, Burnitz, Nady, Nady
CF: Redman, Redman, Duffy, Duffy, McLouth
LF: Mondesi, Bay, Bay, Bay, Bay

Unfortunately, the former ownerships' obsession with signing short-term contracts with random veterans thinking it is a winning answer tend to stick with me (Stynes, Mondesi, etc.)
