    Regardless what order you go, someone may get thier nose out of joint, but suck it up. We need all 5 to produce regardless what # you are?

    So... Dickey, Morrow/Johnson, Romero, Johnson/Morrow, Buehrle . Then I guess you could switch Romero with Buehrle. Its tough. Best to leave it up to the manager.
    I don't see anybody but the reigning NL CY winner as the opening day starter. Morrow or Johnson next, but I think Johnson, if the Jays see him as their future 2 with an extension, then Buerhle, Morrow, and Romero I think they'll keep Ricky in the 5 hole, less pressure, better odds of success facing other teams number 5's to start the season, and rebuild his confidence.

    Considering that AA commented that Dickey was their number one and slotted every one else down a spot, I'd say the smart money is on him.

    Hope you're right about Morrow....he certainly has the ability to be up there if he can string it all together.

    I like Dickey as the opening day starter. I heard on the Fan that pitchers who follow knuckle ballers in their rotation have a great deal of success statistically. I haven't seen any evidence of it, nor any proof to the contrary, but maybe AA would put Johnson in the 2 slot as a gesture to try to get an extension done.
