Get The Long Underwear Ready

The Red Sox will open the 2010 MLB season on Sunday night, April 4th against New York. Yep, ESPN, which hijacks every Sunday game against New York, grabbed this one as well.

I think it's been five years since the Red Sox and Yankees played a Sunday afternoon game.

The Red Sox will now play night games against New York on Tuesday night, April 6 and Wednesday night, April 7th, both with 7:10 PM starts. April 5th and April 8th will now be off days.

I'm cold just thinking about it.

ya know in a generic sense I am not happy with opening with the Yankees. In general I would be excited about the game just because it is Opening Day. Wish we would start playing them in May with a lot of summer series.

So sick of all these night games. Every Fenway Saturday game (almost) is a 7:10 affair. So there's one day a week for day games, and then ESPN goes and grabs those. Weekend games should be mandatory day games.

TZ Marathon will be happening on SyFy, I checked the sked. But I quickly clicked away to avoided giving away the order of the episodes! I cannot wait.

I agree, Jere. The weekend games should be day games. I remember watching the Red Sox throughout the '70s and '80s on Saturday afternoons and they seemed to be on every other week.

I'm like you, I can't wait for the Twilight Zone marathon on New Year's. I like to be surprised too, so I won't check the schedule either.

That's the NBC Game of the Week, I left out in my previous comment.
