Dempster To Start For Cubs On Opening Day

Feb 21, 2011 2:15 PM EST

Ryan Dempster will start for the Cubs on Opening Day, breaking Carlos Zambrano's streak of six consecutive starts on the first day of the season.

Zambrano finished last season 8-0 in his final 11 starts, but he endured a tumultuous first half to the season that included a suspension and anger management therapy following a dugout confrontation with former teammate Derrek Lee.
