I presume that the starting rotation looks like this:

Happ
I think they're actually ordering it like this given the projected pitchers for the opening series:

Dickey
Morrow
Buehrle
Johnson
Happ

I'm glad the Jays made the smart move and stuck with Happ. He has been fantastic so far this spring and he also pitched reasonably well for the Jays down the stretch last year after the trade.

The guy I'm worried about is Johnson. The Jays need to get this guy locked up long-term - if he keeps pitching like he has in Spring Training, he could be in for a huge season and an obviously huge pay day. He's always had the potential to win a Cy Young and with Dickey and Buerhle being fairly old and Romero looking iffy, it would be nice to have Morrow and Johnson to build around long-term.
