Mookie Betts To Lead Off Today Against NU

Manager John Farrell has consistently said he'd like to see Mookie Betts as the 2015 lead-off hitter for the Red Sox. So, in the first contest of the year—today's 1PM tilt against the Northeastern Huskies—Betts is indeed leading off. The full line-up is: Betts CF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, David Ortiz DH, Hanley Ramirez LF, Pablo Sandoval 3B, Mike Napoli 1B, Shane Victorino RF, Xander Bogaerts SS, Christian Vazquez C, Clay Buchholz RHP. Apparently, the Sox are also playing another college later in the day—one from the outskirts of Boston, on some hill somewhere. But, nobody really cares.
