Ryan Drese to start Opening Day 

After weeks of mystery, the Rangers have finally announced their Opening Day starter, and it is going to be Ryan Drese.

It is the logical move...the only two real candidates are Drese and Kenny Rogers. Drese was better last season, and has been stronger this spring, including going 6 solid innings today.

But Buck is big on respect and deferring to veterans, which made Kenny the slight favorite...however, Rogers' slow recovery from the flu allows them blame his illness for sliding him back, rather than it being a sign of disrespect, and he'll apparently start the home opener.
