    Longtime sportscaster Bob Lobel, TV personality/satirist Dick Flavin, and former Red Sox media relations staffer Henry Mahegan will be the three sharing PA duties at Fenway Park this season.

    Sweeney can trigger his opt-out by midnight, and then the Red Sox have 48 hours to respond. They're hopeful they can keep him at Triple-A.

    Today's lineup looks like the opening day lineup.  I'm not sure Farrell will go with Iggy or Ciriaco.  Ciriaco did very well against the Yankees last season so I won't be surprised to see him on opening day at SS instead of Iggy.

    One of the beneficiaries of the Verlander deal: Lester, who could be the second-best FA starter (behind Kershaw) on the market after 2014.

    Ryan Dempster has walked three of the first 14 hitters he's faced against a Twins lineup with no Mauer, Morneau or Willingham.
