The Oldish Kid.

Yeah. Just felt like providing some great contrast in titles on the homepage. This is actually about something else.

Kielty Remains!

Bobby Kielty will, in fact, report to AAA Pawtucket this season rather than opting-out of his deal with the Sox. I'm down with this.

Elsewhere in the baseball world, some baseball things happened today. Eric Gagne blew a save, the Tigers' bullpen, surprise of surprises, cost them a winnable game against the Royals, the 2008 edition of the Orioles*gasp*lost a baseball game. Anyone else find it interesting that in the first game at the Nationals' new ballpark, there was a pitchers' duel involving Odalis F'n Perez and the game was won on a walk-off HR by the face of the franchise. MLB couldn't have scripted Opening Night in D.C. to go any better.

Overheard about the Red Sox's performance in their last exhibition game in Los Angeles:

"That's all we got? One goddamn hit?"

"You can't say goddamn on the air."

"Don't worry... nobody's listening anyway."

Agreed, Mike Lowell. Agreed.

Agreed, Mike Lowell. Agreed.
