Buehrle to make eighth Opening Day start

Feb 21, 2010, 6:06 PM EDT

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen announced Sunday that Mark Buehrle would get the nod on Opening Day for a franchise record eighth time.
Buehrle, entering his 10th year as a member of the White Sox rotation, will break a tie with Billy Pierce for the most Opening Day starts in team history. He gets the nod after going 13-10 with a 3.84 ERA in 33 starts last season.
Guillen didn’t announce the rest of the rotation, but he indicated that Jake Peavy would follow Buehrle. John Danks, Gavin Floyd and Freddy Garcia are also slated to have spots.

    This should boost his HOF chances.
    Because, as we all know, the number of Opening Day starts a pitcher has should determine his candidacy. (cough…Jack Morris…cough)

    What a great rotation. 2010 AL Central champs.
