Just glad to get the win. I'll give them a mulligan today because it was so damn cold. If the Sox are still scoring one or two runs off this 'vaunted' Royals pitching staff in June (like they seemed to do a bunch last year) I'll be concerned.
You remember the last time the Sox opened the season with a 1-0 win don't you???
Yaaaaay conspiracy theories!

I'm pretty sure Lip has said in the past that he rarely, if ever, watches non-Sox MLB games.

Believe it or not, Paulie isn't a very good defender.
Great game. School gets out at 2:50, and we can leave at 3:20, so I was able to listen to the game on MLB and on my drive home. Got home at around the end of the third.
plus St. Louis and Milwaukee
plus NYC parks and Minnesota
plus PNC Park in Pittsburgh
