Answer Guy's Sports Diary (Part I)
Red Sox at Yankees, 8:05 PM

Well, here we are...another off-season - the first one in the basking in the afterglow of a Red Sox World Series triumph for nearly all of Red Sox Nation - has come to a close. The previews have been written and rewritten, the time has passed, and the hot stove can lie fallow for the season.

Other weird themes:

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em: Edgar Renteria was the last out of the World Series, the last obstacle to be overcome for the Red Sox in their unprecedented run to the World Championship... he now finds himself donning their uniform.

Reversal of fortune:David Wells starting on Opening Day in Yankee Stadium...for Boston. Thought I'd see a statue of General Sherman in Atlanta before I saw this day.

Over The Hill Two teams that had [essentially] no lefty starters last year put out two lefties. Both will turn 42 during the course of this season.

The Red Sox have lost four straight Opening Day games, all of them on the road. So my expectations aren't high, but we'll see...
