No Joshing

Josh Beckett today becomes the 14th different pitcher to get the nod in Fenway’s opener since 1991. Only Pedro Martinez (2002-03) and Frank Viola (1992-93) made a pair of starts over that time period.

The rest:

Tim Wakefield (2005)
Bronson Arroyo (2004)
Tomo Ohka (2001)
Ramon Martinez (2000)
Bret Saberhagen (1999)
Brian Rose (1998)
Steve Avery (1997)
Tom Gordon (1996)
Aaron Sele (1995)
Roger Clemens (1994)
Danny Darwin (1991)

  • Best t-shirt spotted thus far: Passed by a fan in the concourse wearing a green “Muzzle McCarver” top.
  • Have it your way: Personalized Coco Crisp jerseys can be purchased one of two ways.

    You can simply go with “Crisp,” No. 10, or you can elect to go Ichiro-style with “Coco,” No. 10. Covelli is not currently an option.

  • An announcement in the press work room remains posted from last October, in which White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen will meet with the press prior to Game 3 of the ALDS. As far as I can tell, they have vacuumed up here since then.
