Players to watch: Manny Ramirez. Hopefully Manny’s home run in Toronto on Thursday is what he needed to start breaking the slump. Alex Rodriguez. As much as I dislike the guy, he is absolutely on fire to start the season. 2 of his 10 home runs are of the walk-off variety, including yesterday’s 3 run homer to win the game.

Update: The Red Sox will be wearing there green uniforms tonight and be honoring the late Celtics legend Red Auerbach before the game.
