Buehrle gets the Opening Day start

and Javy gets the home opener says Joe Cowley:

Manager Ozzie Guillen unofficially made it official on Friday that Mark Buehrle would indeed start his sixth Opening Day in the last seven years.

The way the rotation sets up right now - with a slight subject to change - It will be Buehrle against Cleveland in the opener, followed by Javier Vazquez and John Danks. Jose Contreras would then start the three-game series in Detroit, followed by Gavin Floyd and then Buehrle. As far as the home opener, that will fall to Vazquez, rewarding the veteran right-hander for his 15-8 2007 season.

Mark Gonzales and Scott Merkin report it too.
