The Sox cross swords with the World Champs.

Greetings from Stamford, Connecticut! I’m doing the crossword tournament today, and I’m typing this from the lobby of the Stamford Marriott with my computer at 6 percent juice. I gotta be fast. It’s my rookie appearance. Wish me luck.

It’s also the last Sale Day before Opening Day, and that is Good. The Astros, who we play at 1:05 p.m. on NESN, are pretty good. Discuss that — and why some of the names below got automatically hyperlinked and others didn’t (I sure don’t know) — and more in the gamethread below. Here is the lineup:

  1. Mookie Betts, RF
  2. Eduardo Nunez, 2B
  3. Hanley Ramirez, DH
  4. J.D. Martinez, LF
  5. Xander Bogaerts, SS
  6. Mitch Moreland, 1B
  7. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
  8. Christian Vazquez, C
  9. Brock Holt, 3B
