The Red Sox open the 2020 season at Fenway Park tonight
Here we are, friends! We finally made it. After what has been or at least felt like the longest offseason in the history of the game, it’s Opening Day weekend. While some teams got their start last night, tonight is the night that we all care about. The Red Sox will be opening the 2020 campaign at the historic Fenway Park against the Orioles.
At points, it felt like we were never going to get to this moment, and now we’re just a short time away from the first pitch. Of course, this is a new-look Red Sox team compared to the one we saw last season and a drastically different squad that we saw in 2018. This is our team though and even with the recent losses of Mookie Betts, David Price, Rick Porcello, and Brock Holt, we’ll soldier on towards October.
It won’t be easy, don’t get me wrong, this very well could be the most miserable 60 games any of us have ever endured in a single season. For me, I have the Red Sox finishing at a pretty close to even 32-28, which with the expanded playoff format, just might do the trick.
Nonetheless, I think there are a few players that we should keep our eyes on this weekend and especially tonight as they open the season. With that all said, let’s get to the ones we need to watch!
