Expectations are high all around for the Boston Red Sox, and, minutes before the season kicked off in Texas, NESN's Tom Caron asked the Hall of Fame panel of Peter Gammons, Jim Rice and Dennis Eckersley what they're most excited about this year.
For Rice, no surprise, it's the hitters.
Eck is excited to see Adrian Gonzalez, who hasn't been seen too much on the East Coast.
Gammons is excited to see what the combination of Jacoby Ellsbury and Carl Crawford can do on the basepaths.
Check out the discussion from Red Sox GameDay LIVE presented by UNO in the video above.
