Red Sox-Tigers

Damn, I have not looked forward to the start of a season this much in a long time. 

Red Sox - Tigers is going to be some exciting ball.  In addition to the marquee pitching duels, the Red Sox are going to have to deal with Prince Fielder - and if Boston does get ahead, well, only Bobby Valentine knows for sure who is going to be on the mound in the ninth inning.

The Tigers' defense looks suspect but everything else about them looks great.  Given that the Red Sox will be playing on the Tigers' turf, I'll be satisfied if they come away from the three-game series with one win, and ecstatic if they come away with two wins. 

Play ball!
