What's the Sox secret weapon for their Opening Day game against Cleveland and lefty C.C. Sabathia? Two leadoff men. Ozuna batting first and Owens batting 9th. Jesse understands Ozzie:

"Yeah, I understand the matchups, but some lefties are different than others," said Owens. "Some I see well and others not well at all. Some times I hit lefties better than righties. You want to go get more at-bats for guys at the top against certain pitchers. Sometimes it's a little overrated, but I know where he's coming from."
We're doomed, aren't we?
