Opening Weekend 2018 was a Success for the Sox

Red Sox Home Opener- Thursday Opening Day at Fenway finally arrived. David Ortiz and Aly Raisman yelled “play ball”, and Sox Nation rose to their feet. David Price had yet another successful game.

The Red Sox came back in...

Mookie Betts: Arbitration Deal in his Favor
