Although Shane Victorino’s game winning hit against his former team will be featured by most media, the two significant take-aways from the Sox 6-1 win over the Phils are: ‘Look out Old Lackey is Back’ and GM Cherington’s confirmation that rookie OF Jackie Bradley is now odds on to start at Fenway on Opening Day.

About the Author
Baseball is my life: writing, coaching, announcing, umpiring, reading. I am a registered member of the Red Sox Nation and enmeshed in the team on a daily level, on the internet, on the phone, and at the hardware store. In 1963 I was a Sports reporter at the Syracuse Herald-Journal; I covered Syracuse University sports, HS football and basketball. I was a reporter at the NY Journal-American (1964-65). After 32 years on the English department faculty (1968-2000) I took early retirement to spend more time with the love of my life...BASEBALL ! [BTW, I served as play-by-play announcer for the games that were broadcast on Viacom cable.] Since retiring and moving to Maine in 2000, I have coached, managed, umpired, run fantasy baseball teams, and posted often in websites and blogs. Currently I am the Pitching Coach at the local HS and I umpire at the lower age levels. [55 years of umpiring and counting!] "Baseball is not a matter of life and death...it's more important than that."
