The Red Sox, led by Commander Kickass, were unleashed upon the hapless BC kids today, in the first official baseball action of the 2008 Boston Red Sox season. Final score? 24-0.
Also, Dustin Pedroia kicked off what's sure to be a season-ful of Happy Scrappy quotes with this mention in the AP:
Pedroia doubled in two runs in the second, then was replaced by Granadillo.
The scrappy Pedroia said he never played an exhibition game against a major league team when he was at Arizona State.
But, if he did, "we might have put a whupping on somebody," he said with a smile as he left the clubhouse. "That's how I'd have handled it."
And all's well.
