Mark Buehrle will be making his seventh opening day start today at 1:05 pm against the Kansas City Royals. Buehrle will tie Billy Pierce for most opening day starts by a Sox hurler. Hopefully the southpaw will fair better than his 2008 opening day start in which he was battered by the Clevland Indians for seven runs in a 10-8 loss. Buehrle and the Southsiders were scheduled to take the field yesterday for the beginning of their 2009 campaign. Weather however, proved the difference as Roger Bossard determined the field was not ideal for baseball. It was the first time in over a quarter of a century that baseball was postponed for opening day Southsiders.
This is how the White Sox will take the field today:
- Dewayne Wise CF
- Chris Getz 2B
- Carlos Quentin LF
- Jim Thome DH
- Jermaine Dye RF
- Paul Konerko 1B
- A.J Pierzynski C
- Alexi Ramirez SS
- Josh Fields 3B
Enzo's pick to click is Chris Getz.
Final Score: White Sox 4 Royals 1
