Schilling insults Chris Archer's hair; Daily News includes picture of Schilling with a mullet.

From MLB.com - "Postponed: Cold"

I remember a few years ago they suspended a Portland Sea Dogs game due to "freeze out;" insert your Springsteen jokes here

How could I forget Mike Carp?!?

Elias:
Francisco Liriano not only opened the scoring with an RBI-single yesterday but he also struck out 10 batters without allowing a run in six innings to earn the win in the Pirates' 4-1 victory over the Cardinals. Two years ago, Liriano turned in an almost identical opening-day performance, with 10 strikeouts and no runs in six innings against the Cubs. Since the distance to home plate was set at 60 feet, 6 inches in 1893, only two other pitchers had a pair of 10-strikeout, no-run games in their teams' season-openers: Chris Short for the Phillies (1965 and 1968), and Pedro Martinez for the Red Sox (1998 and 2000).
Now about that RBI-single: Liriano was the first pitcher to drive in the first run of any major-league season since 1973. Don Gullett gave the Reds a 1-0 lead with a sacrifice fly in the only game played on April 5 that year.

Hoping the Red Sox can find their way to The Promised Land.

when goose gossage was playing they wouldn't think of cancelling opening day due to cold. Further evidence that pussy nerds have taken over the game as well as these Latin players who don't like the cold having too much influence right? /s

"Felix Hernandez is only Opening Day starter in last 100 years to lose while allowing 1 hit or fewer in 6+ IP."
