Home Opener GameThread: Red Sox @ Blue Jays

Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

Baseball is back in Toronto. We get out first look at the dirt infield. And we will likely have our first opposing manager complaining about it.

Josh Donaldson is DHing today, which is a smart move. Keep his bat out there, and let him rest his leg.

Marcus Stroman gets his second start of the season. I hope it goes as well as the first start.

Today's Lineups

Mookie Betts - RF Kevin Pillar - CF
Dustin Pedroia - 2B Josh Donaldson - DH
Xander Bogaerts - SS Jose Bautista - RF
David Ortiz - DH Edwin Encarnacion - 1B

I'm just back from a bike ride, 40 k, trying to build up for my Ride to Conquer Cancer. I'm going to post this, run off and shower and get back for the start of the game.
