Today is, without a doubt, one of my favorite days of the year: Major League Baseball's Opening Day. Well, it's kind of Opening Day. The rest of baseball won't get going for another week or so, but this morning the Red Sox and A's played a great one in Tokyo. For those of us who woke up early and had baseball with our bacon and eggs, we were rewarded with a great 6-5, 10-inning game. I managed to drag myself out of bed at 5-something this morning, shower, and have bacon and eggs and coffee ready by first pitch.
Thoughts on the game: 1) Daisuke scares me. He really does. 2) Sox are probably going to need to trade for another long reliever/spot starter 3) Manny Ramirez is on pace for 648 RBI, and he might actually do it 4) J.D. Drew is an enigma to me 5) I still can't stand Jerry Remy 6) Boston owes Emil Brown a beer. Thank you, Emil.
