Default Konerko Starting on Opening Day?

So apparently there is a very real chance of Paulie starting on Opening Day. I'm not sure how the rest of you feel, but I think that would be a classy move by the organization. I'll take the risk that we finish one game out of the playoffs this year to give our captain his final Opening Day start. Thoughts?

Perhaps he will steal a base like he did on Opening Day 2004.

Sure why not, It will may be the largest crowd of the season and for sure the largest contingent of Sox fans. This is like senior day for him.

If they're up against a lefty, Dunn better be on the bench, that's all I know. No excuse for batting him against any with this roster.

It's going to be RHP Ricky Nolasco.

But, yes, start Konerko, just make sure to start Jose Abreu too. I don't even care which of them plays where.
