Opening Day Or Groundhog Day For Red Sox?

In a few short hours, we will know. The fresh start that is Opening Day will be upon us. It is a chance for the Carmine Hose to expunge all the negativity of the last eighteen months and strike out on a new course—actually head out on a new course is probably a better phrase. Today at 1PM, your 2013 edition of the Red Sox will face what could be the worst Yankee team since 1966. Old friend Kevin Youkilis will be hitting clean-up for the Evil Ones—that's really all you need to know. There's no reason why Jon Lester cannot best C.C., so there's a real chance that Boston could begin the campaign in the win column. Then again, we could be seeing the start of yet another depressing 'bridge year' with only Jackie Bradley, Jr. to lighten our load. So, will it be the Opening Day of a new era or Groundhog Day? Play ball.
