Fenway Park, 1:21pm, 4.10.07
Where’s a hot stove when you need one? Mother and Father of SF are in the house up in Boston (as usual), and the word of the day is COLD. Somehow through the chill my tech-savvy (NOT!) mother was able to send me a shot of the field during warmups, and if she has a few Fenway Frankless moments during the contest we hope to post more of her fine work. Today’s game features the Sox and Mariners, with Josh Beckett taking the hill for our beloved Beantowners. The Mariners sic World Series hero Jeff Weaver on the Sox, and there’s hopefully a little rust all over Seattle: they haven’t played a game since last Wednesday, in part due to blizzards, monsoons, tornadoes, locusts, and at least three more of the ten plagues.
This is your game thread for today’s Fenway opener.
