"As Roger Craig liked to put it, there are Opening Day pitchers, and pitchers who start on Opening Day . 'Jack Morris is probably the best of the former,' Craig wrote in Inside Pitch , his 1984 book with Vern Plagenhoef. 'Better than Don Drysdale , Jim Bunning , Bob Gibson , Sandy Koufax , Don Newcombe and Carl Erskine .' You can argue where Morris should rank on a list of baseball's best pitchers - his many near-misses in Hall of Fame voting stand as evidence that plenty do argue - but Morris' status among those who played with him remains unchallenged. In a big game, they all wanted Jack Morris on the mound. Year after year, when Jack Morris was on the staff, there were never any questions about who was the ace. He was the guy you wanted on the mound in Game 1 in October. He was definitely the guy you wanted on the mound in Game 7 in October." - Author Danny Knobler in Numbers Don't Lie: Tigers: The Biggest Numbers in Tigers History (Triumph Books, 'Jack Morris 11 Consecutive Opening Day Starts,' 06/01/2015)
