    Who Will Start For Opening Day?

    This is a good problem for John Gibbons.

    Not Romero or Buerhle I would think.

    I think we would need to see how they all pitch in Spring Training before makIng the final decision.

    And by the way, those pants, they belong to my dad.And they're not really pants,
    they're Lederhosen

    Johann you're killing with the Jenneke signature. I re-read your post three times before I digested any of the words.

    It might be a good idea to start Romero. Not that he deserves it but if all his physical issues-bone chips- are cleared than a show of faith might work wonders on his confidence. The Jays need him back to his pre 2012 form.

    Morrow
    Buerhle
    Johnson
    Romero

    This is how I see the rotation starting with RA on opening day.

    Dickey...how can you not start the reigning Cy Young as your #1? That would be a first I think..

    Did you ever think you'd see Vernon Wells hitting in the leadoff spot? Gibby is the guy to do messed up things.

    Personally, I think we go with either Morrow or Johnson.

    A nice Flamethrower to start the season, followed by RA Dickeys Knuckleball

    they're Lederhosen

    It all depends on how you want to set up the rotation..

    ideally I would like to have one of Johnson or Morrow follow Dickey just to **** him hitters

    My rotation would look like

    Dickey
    Morrow
    Buehrle
    Johnson
    Romero

    This. Imagine how much of a mind**** it would be for hitters to go from facing Dickey one day to Brandon Morrow the next? Morrow is primed for a huge year especially with a weaker AL East than we may have ever seen. I'm calling it right now, if he stays healthy, he'll compete for the Cy Young.

    Perfect set up. Right hand knuckler. Right hand power. Left hand softy. Right hand power. Left hand mid-range.

    I think people forget how good Morrow was last year because of his unfortunate injury

    I have much higher hopes for him this year than i do for JJ

    Yeah I know but at this point he has to be. They also want to re-sign Johnson and they arent going to do that by tell him he's a #4.

    You cant have three righties, two lefties either.

    So someone gets screwed....and because Morrow is host, he'll take the hit and welcome the other three guys...

    Neither is Josh Johnson, we arguably have 3 aces and 2 2nd in the order guys in buehrle and romero..

    I say

    Johnson
    Dickey
    Morrow
    Romero
    Buehrle

    I think you surround Dickey with fireballers and that ****s with everyone.. If Dickey is #1 though then Buehrle is 4 and Romero is 5
