Red Sox v. Orioles Opening Day clash postponed
Today is the day that baseball fans have been waiting for, Opening Day. One of the holiest days on the sports calendar has finally arrived, except for Red Sox Nation. Moments ago, the organization announced that today’s lunchtime clash with the Baltimore Orioles has been postponed due to a rainy morning in Boston. The game will now get pushed to tomorrow with seemingly everything just carrying over to Friday.
Red Sox Nation was more than geared up for today’s game as this squad looked pretty damn good in spring training and there is definitely a different feeling in the air. Ahead of 2020, there was a lot of confusion and downright pessimism not just with the team but with everything surrounding COVID. While the country is still very much in the battle with the virus things are in a positive swing. Having fans back at Fenway Park for the 2021 season instantly made this upcoming campaign better than what we went through last year.
Nathan Eovaldi was once again set to take the mound for the Red Sox just as he had for Opening Day last year. The fireballing righty had a mediocre spring training but still showed plenty of promise that he can get the job done to open the regular season. Boston’s pitching staff has been the biggest topic of discussion over the last year or so and Chaim Bloom made sure to address it this offseason.
