I'd be very surprised if Mathematica Player starts up faster than
Mathematica.  That aside, it should be possible to change the default
application to open notebook files using the Finder's Get Info
window.  Additionally, Mathematica 7 includes a QuickLook plugin for
Mac OS X 10.5.  So you can select the file in the Finder and press the
QuickLook button (or the space bar) to get an idea what's in the file.
