Not like it was drawn up

CLEVELAND – GM Ken Williams obviously envisioned a different start to the season. Made obvious in his comments hours before the first pitch.

I saw the schedule and I was actually happy we opened up in the fashion that we opened up, Williams said We can take a look at our competition head up, assess where we are and they can get a good look at us too.

Cleveland must like what they see, because after two innings and a seven-run second, it was defending division champs 7, Sox 2.

And as far as Sox starter Mark Buehrle changing some recent history with the Indians, that wont be happening on this day, with the lefty in the showers after just 1 2/3 innings of work, to go along with seven runs on seven hits.

The southpaw did very little to change his history against Cleveland, considering he entered the day a career 8-11 with a 4.61 ERA.
