Time to set the tone for the season and begin proving those assholes like Slick and GoNM wrong.

How boring would that be? The only thing worse would be 0-162.

It's a marathon, not a sprint and all those silly metaphors. Let's start the season off with a win! Though not having to see Lackey on the mound this season is already a win.

Based on the stats of both teams hitters it might be a 0-0 tie.

While the season is indeed a marathon, I would like to see them sprint out to an immediate winning streak, rather than the crap they pulled last April. And if 162-0 is boring, I'd be happy to be bored. 162 wins, all of which involve late inning heroics and/or masterful pitching performances, would be my kind of boring! Go Sox!

161-1.

We'll lose one game to the Orioles, just so Buck Showalter can feel really good about himself.

After being at game 162 last year I'd rather lose a game to the Yankees.

I was at game 161 (the last victory). I'd prefer 18-1 to the O's coupled with 19-0 against the MFY, rather than vice versa. The O's are too pitiful to despise that much.

I am glad that this game is on both NESN and ESPN2. Last night, I tried to turn on ESPN 2, and I got a f**king "satellite searching for signal" message. Today, I decide to watch on NESN, because as much as I'm interested in hearing what Terry Francona has to say, I'm really not interested in what the rest of ESPN has to say. But NESN keeps cutting out. ESPN seems to be coming in.

F**k you, flying space objects.

Dustin Pedroia is going to have some very clean balls by the end of this game.
