Pavano got the start for the Yankees because Pettite needed an extra day of rest.
Rockies just announced O'Dowd and Hurdle have had their contracts extended for 2 more years.
Love baseball opening day! I had been to every Rockies opening day until 2004 when I broke my streak. Nice day today and I wish I was going, but will stay home and watch it on tv and try to catch tomorrow night's game at Coors if the weather is good.
