Terry Francona informed RHP Justin Masterson in the dugout today that he will be the club's Opening Day starter in Toronto on April 2nd. It will be Justin’s second career Opening Day start after last season. Terry will discuss the decision on the field after the game.

Cool.

Love that we get to start the season by facing a knuckleballer. Good chance to put everybody into an early slump.

According to Camino, Jimenez is the #2.

I have a gut feeling Dickey is going to turn out to be a 1 yr wonder, and get shalacked opening day.

Well, the first half of your prediction has been wrong for two years already, but I'll drink to the second half.

I'd take issue with making Masterson the opening day starter if I thought there was a better alternative.

I'm just curious as to why Francona made the decision this early in camp. Not that it's a huge issue, but I figured he'd at least let everyone get some more work under their belt before making the decision public.
