Rantings and ravings from an admitted fan (as in fanatic!) of the Boston Red Sox. Updated only occasionally, but with my take on recent developments in Red Sox Nation. Updated more frequently during the end of the regular season and playoffs (hopefully).

2007 Season Opener

I’ve never been a big fan of the thinking that the season opener is a “barometer” of things to come for the season. And it’s a pretty darn good thing today, as the Sox dropped their season opener at Kansas City this afternoon, Curt Schilling getting touched up in the process.  What the hell is it with Kansas City?  The Sox got swept their last year in a sign of bad things to come, and then they start off the new season with a lopsided loss at KC.  And then against the rest of the league, the Royals turn into the Bad News Bears.  I just don’t get it.


Anyway, I am optimistic about this season. Dice-K looks to be the real deal, I like the acquisition of Lugo at SS, and some other pickups are pretty key. I could never understand why things went so bad so quickly last year, so maybe my optimism is misplaced, but there you go.  Let the games begin, let’s play two, and all that stuff.  Can’t wait for this season to get into full swing!
