I never thought I’d look forward to a Monday as much as I am right now. Starting tomorrow, it’s on. No more speculation, no more Triple-A rosters, no more box scores like this…

Who is this “???” guy?
The 162-game marathon kicks off tomorrow with Schill versus Gil Meche. Everything counts, the Florida numbers go away. Every Papi homer, every Lugo stolen base, every Schilling strike-out all go on the official 2007 stats.
And what better way to kick off the season than with a 4:05 start? Plenty of time to come up with a good “I have to leave work early” story and get home in time to ice the keg and fire up the grill.
From the Nostradenton files: Sox win this one in a laugher.
