Rotation Set For the Start

Terry Francona has set the Red Sox rotation for the opening two weeks of the 2010 season. It will go something like this:

April 4, 6 and 7 vs. NY: Josh Beckett, Jon Lester and John Lackey;
April 9, 10 and 11 at KC: Tim Wakefield; Beckett and Clay Buchholz;
April 12, 14 and 15 at MIN (the opening at Target Field): Lester, Lackey and Wakefield;
April 16, 17 and 18 vs. TB: Beckett, Buchholz and Lester.

The Red Sox also today acquired infielder Kevin Frandsen from the Giants for either a player to be named later or cash, and signed 12-year veteran lefty Scott Schoeneweis, who had recently been released by Milwaukee. They also released lefty Brian Shouse.

I like having depth at starting pitching (you really need 6 or 7)

Can't wait

I hope they learned from the Bronson Arroyo mistake of 2006.
