It's Opening Night. Are you all getting a little giddy?

There are a lot of differing opinions out there, but Red Sox-Yankees isn't a horrible way to kick off a season. And Opening Day turning into Opening Night? Who cares? It's regular season baseball and that's the most important thing.

Rumor central: Pedro Martinez -- yes, that Pedro Martinez -- may be throwing out the first pitch. If he does, I'm going to cry.
