The boys of summer are back, thankfully, as major league baseball regular season action got underway on Monday. My Red Sox beat the dreaded Yankees 8-2 but the real story across many ballparks was the near record cold. It was the second coldest opening day on record in Minneapolis for the Twins as well as the Brewers in Milwaukee. Temperatures at game time were around 35F about 15 degrees below normal, add in the wind and it was below freezing at many venues. We will have a slow warming trend this week so the weekend games should be much warmer!
