According to Howard Byrant in today’s Boston Herald, David Wells will start on Opening Night in the Bronx versus Randy Johnson and the Yanks. However, Curt Schilling is looked sharp in an intrasquad game yesterday:
“I felt very good…I thought I threw the ball with a lot more velocity. A lot more balls felt normal.
“I guess you could call it a breakthrough day in that I didn’t have any issues, but the big thing is seeing how I bounce back.”
There will be plenty of time for Schilling and Johnson to hook up this year. Plus, Boomer generally gets up for a big game. Regardless, there will be plenty to write about with him on the mound in New York against his former team. Whatever happens, it most likely won’t be dull.
