Happy opening day fellow baseball fans!
It is a beautiful day to be a Red Sox fan. I mean isn't it every day? But today was just another reason why we have the best team.
I know everyone always says don't get ahead of yourself it's just the first game and it's a long season, but let's be real. We didn't just win. We spanked the Phillies.
With a Pedroia homerun in the first, Betts homerun in the 3rd, Pedroia and Ramirez homeruns in the 5th and a Ramirez grand slam to end the game in the 9th, the Red Sox blast past the Phillies.
Nothing short of amazing especially with the way Buchholz pitched. He pitched seven shutout innings and struck out nine. Only the best way to prove that we didn't need Hamels.
I am thrilled with the way the Red Sox opening day went and can't wait to see the strength of this team as the season goes on. If we keep this up another World Series may be in our future and the thought of that makes me giddy.
I spent a few days down in Fort Myers, FL for spring training last week and was a little bummed they lost both games my friend and I went to see, but then again that was spring training and this is now.
And now is looking good.
