The Red Sox shot out of the gate yesterday with six runs in the first inning. Let’s do it again, shall we? Yeah yeah I’m not on the team or anything, but I feel like I played my part. I’m no Steve Selsky, but I haven’t been optioned to Pawtucket, either. Take that, Selsky!

Also not in Pawtucket: Reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Rick Porcello, who gets the nod today.

The Twins counter with Ervin Santana. Smooth move, Ferguson, and congrats to me on referencing Rob Thomas and 30 Rock in the same phrase. Of course, it’s everything sunny all the time always over here these days with baseball just around the corner, and the, ya know, actual sun finally out again here in the northeast.
