Harper and Machado are still free agents; so let's do another poll. Like the one based on the opening day starters for the 1990s and 2000s; this one takes the opening day starters from the 1980s. Let's see how they rank up against each other. Choose your starter based on the one you think was the best or the one that was your favorite and share your reasons below.

There are not ten options because some pitchers made more than one Opening Day start during the decade. For your information; the years and names of the pitchers who made each Opening Day start are listed below:

1980: Pete Vuckovich
1981: Bob Forsch
1982: Bob Forsch
1983: Bob Forsch
1984: Dave LaPoint
1985: Joaquin Andujar
1986: John Tudor
1987: John Tudor
1988: Joe Magrane
1989: Joe Magrane

John Tudor.......... as far as I'm concerned, it shouldn't even be a contest.

Tudor was my favorite player when I was a kid...Forsch was a great Cardinal too; but Tudor was the best to me. Especially when he was like...You can trade me to the Dodgers if you want; but I ain't staying there.

I voted Dave LaPoint. You have to be an excellent pitcher to lead the league in wild pitches.

1985 John Tudor: 275 IP, 10 shutouts. Just imagine someone coming close to that now.
