Yost Tabs Vargas for Opener

Ned Yost announced that Claudio Vargas would take the hill for the 2007 opener....of Spring Training. No word on the opening day starter, although my money would be on Ben Sheets. Might as well get as many starts from him as possible before the inevitable breakdown.

In Brewers injury news, we have the second instance of "breaking up of scar tissue" being blamed for offseason pain for one of the team's walking wounded.

In December, Hardy advanced to baseball drills, including running. He received a minor scare before Christmas when the ankle stiffened but it turned out to be scar tissue breaking up. Hardy took a few days off and went back to work, counting the days to spring training.

I think I could be a Brewers team doctor - apparently, scar tissue explains everything. I wonder if Ted Higuera has worked through that scar tissue yet...
