I'm putting up the Open Thread early because I've got my first lacrosse game to cover for the local newspaper tomorrow. I'm pretty mad that I'll miss the home opener, but there will be another 80 games at Fenway this season. Plus, NESN will be rebroadcasting the game later in the day and the ring ceremony, so I'm covered on all bases.
Let's raise the banner, boys, and get a win to kick off the opening of Fenway.
TIME: 3:05 @ Fenway Park
RED SOX PROBABLE: YANKEES PROBABLE: Tim Wakefield (0-0, 2.70) Mike Mussina (0-0, 3.00)
