First getaway day in 2010
It is a gorgeous Sunday afternoon in Kansas City, with the waterfall out in right-center in full effect. Perfect day for baseball.
The only real lineup news for the Sox is J.D. Drew being out for a day with a stiff neck. Bill Hall will make his first start of the year at short.
Of course, it will be intriguing to watch Clay Buchholz pitch today, because, at some point, Daisuke Matsuzaka is going to be in the rotation and someone is going to have to come out. Tim Wakefield didn’t look like that someone on Friday, when he threw seven terrific innings.
And a happy 38th birthday to Sox captain Jason Varitek, who celebrated with a pair of homers last night.
