Game 1: Red Sox vs. Indians

New, comments

And here it is, the first game thread of the 2016 season!

It's not quite coming when we expected it. And it's been a rough 21 extra hours waiting for this game to arrive. Given that MLB insists on doing Opening Day during the middle of the day during the work week, I also imagine that some folks who had specially planned to be here for Game 1 have had those plans scuttled.

For the rest of us, though...

Red Sox baseball! David Price on the mound!

Let's start this thing off right. It's been too long since we've watched meaningful Red Sox baseball, and longer still since we've watched meaningful late-season Red Sox baseball. The quest to bring that back into the world begins now.

Go Sox!
