Who would've thought that Rich Hill would be a 2016 Opening Day starter?

 

New prediction- Sox 7, Oakland 2

What if Drake LaRoche meant to poison Jimmy Rollins' food as payback, but he accidentally poisoned Gray's???

Maybe you are different from me, but every time I couldn't watch a game and recorded it, no matter how well I planned, it never worked out.

 

Same here -- very rarely turns into the intended experience, for one reason or another.

I don't like this at all. Rich Hill is the typical shi**y starter we never hit......

 

Gonna be different this year. I can feel it.

0-1 with a 6.35 ERA lifetime vs. the Sox. Averages a walk and a strikeout an inning.

There are a bunch of new hitters this year too.

 

Frazier and Abreu are going back-to-back.

 

Good break for the Sox.

We were going to face him tomorrow anyway if it weren't for the food poisoning today.

At Cleveland and at Yankees postponed. Baseball is not meant to be played in early April for a bunch of the teams. Let's hope Tampa isn't moved to Montreal creating another lousy early season spot. Unless they also go indoors.

Unless gray is out for every game of the series how in the world is this a break? In fact this guarantees that we won't have a pitching edge in one of the games wheras we probably would have had the better starter in all four games otherwise. The season is longer than opening day

It's always good to win the first one. If this helps the Sox win tonight, then it could relax them.

 

You lose Sale vs Gray, the pressing could start right away.

It's really not meant to be played in early November either but unless they go to a 154 game schedule or the MLBPA allows more doubleheaders -- this is what we get.

 

I'm glad the Sox are in Oakland to start. Get some good weather to start, then even if it's cold in Chicago at least they'll be glad to be home.

I wonder if we should scratch Sale tonight. Seems like pitching him here is a waste when he's not needed to win. Pitch Danks against Hill and let him pad his record for trade value. Than come back with Sale later in the series when he might be needed to get a win.

Hell no, get the win then move on.

This isn't MLB the Show... You take wins any way you can get them. I for one do not think this means an auto-win. Helps their chances? Sure, but that's about it.

If LaRoche hadn't retired, Avi would more than likely been a super sub of sorts spelling all three outfielders and DHing versus LHP allowing him to play 3 or 4 days a week. He would probably not be in the lineup today.

 

Going into the pre-season, I would have agreed. After Avi's spring training, who knows.

Also pitchers have routines, preparation that goes beyond just the day of the start. You can't necessarily just scratch a guy and insert another because you feel like playing matchups.

Sonny Gray scratched due to food poisoning. Rich Hill starts in his place

Watch Rich Hill kick our ass.

 

He was pretty dominant at the end of last season. He may turn out to be a really good signing that Oakland can flip mid-season.

 

A junk ballling lefty? There is always that chance.

In a winter of crazy contracts, this one might have been one of the worst.
