With Yordano Ventura pitching, Royals opener would have been awesome

The popular thing — the awesome thing — would have been for pitching phenomenon Yordano Ventura to greet fans in Kansas City by throwing the first pitch in the home opener of the most promising Royals season in a generation. But manager Ned Yost is not doing the awesome thing. The productive but rather boring Jeremy Guthrie starts today’s home opener; Ventura heads to the bullpen this weekend and starts sometime next week. And nobody can be sure whether it’s the right thing for the most precious, precarious asset the Royals have.
