Just a quick thought...there is a chance that Hudson, Mulder and Zito could all be opening day starters in 2005.
There goes the annual question on OaklandAthletics.com, who should be the A's opening day starter.
Then again, it could wind up being John Smoltz, Matt Morris and Rich Harden (unlikely given Zito's stature with the club as the elder statesman now, but who knows?).
I've attached a quick poll whether you think it will be Harden or Zito to throw out the first A's pitch in 2005. This is assuming everyone is healthy and the roster remains intact, which is by no means a certainty.
