Official 2018 Boston Red Sox Thread

#1 Post by garys » 11 Oct 2017 14:30

On to 2018.
Truck Day will be sometime the first week of February.
Spring training will start about a week later.
The Red Sox will open at the Rays on March 29.
There's a lot that will happen between now and then.
A new Manager is needed.
The rotation needs to be stabilized.
Players are going to free agency and won't be offered contracts.
Players are going to be traded.
Players are going to be acquired.

Let the speculation begin!
We're peace loving people, we're not hunting trouble, but if trouble should find us, we'll stand up and fight.

I thought they'd wait until after the World Series, but the 'Sox have a new manager Alex Cora;

They were expected to make the announcement tomorrow, but I think they decided on today since it wouldn't detract from the post season since there is nothing between today and Tuesday. That will give the talk show geeks something to talk about tomorrow.

To maintain the Opening Day tradition of a fly-over at Fenway Park, two vintage P-51 Mustangs will fly at the conclusion of the national anthem.
The Merlin-powered P-51 Mustangs, which first entered World War II combat in December 1943, are provided by the Air Force Heritage Flight Foundation,
and will be piloted by Charles Hainline and Vlado Lenoch.
