The Boston Red Sox have just opened the 2007 season in Kansas City. The Boston weather provides a good reason for the Sox opener to be a road game.
The Boston Globe coverage focuses on the pitcher… but not one who will pitch today. “He wasn’t pitching today, but Dice-K couldn’t seem to stay away from the camera,” runs the caption for this picture. But it seems more as if the Globe’s cameras couldn’t stay away from Daisuke Matsuzaka.
In news of the game itself, the Sox got a run in the first inning, but the Royals already have three hits of Schilling (who is actually pitching today).
