Will Play: BIG PAPI (BOS)
In his last Opening Day at Fenway Park, Big Papi has a record to protect! David Ortiz has reached base via hit or BB in his 1st home game of each season since joining the Red Sox (2003-15), batting .333 (15-for-45) with 2 HR, 4 2B, 9 BB, 7 runs scored,and 8 RBI in those 13 games. In last year's home opener, went 2-for-4 with a HR and 2 RBI against the Nationals.
Consider: Ian Kinsler (DET)
Birthday boy: Mark Charles Teixeira (NYY)
Taking my bts mulligan on these two.
