Jackie Bradley, Jr. Not In Opening Day Lineup

Inexplicably, the Red Sox have decided to bench Jackie Bradley, Jr. in the team's Home Opener at Fenway Park today. One of the most exciting players to don a Red Sox uniform in years, Bradley, Jr. (while hitting only .143) has contributed something to every one of the four Red Sox wins. Daniel Nava will start in left field today and Jose Iglesias will start at short in what is likely to be his final game before being sent back to AAA. Suffice it to say there will be thousands of disappointed fans at the old ball yard today.
