It’s Opening Day at Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox come storming into town on the backs of a successful and encouraging five game road trip to start the season. For just today, all pomp and circumstance is welcome as we celebrate baseball and the season ahead in Boston – having David Price on the mound certainly helps the cause.

Paul and Tim recap the season opening road trip, take a look at the performance of the starting pitchers, a resurgent bullpen and go up and down the lineup. After tightening their belts a little, they get into a little Pablo Sandoval talk and close with a look ahead to the opening homestand.

All that and more on this week’s edition of Down by the River.

Thanks for listening!
