Live from Beantown, Welcome to World Series Media Day

Fenway
The Yawkey Way entrance to Fenway Park is quiet Tuesday morning.

BOSTON -- Greetings from Beantown! I'll be on hand this afternoon at Fenway Park to get the lowdown as the Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals chat it up on the eve of their World Series opener.

WSlogoIt's MLB's fifth annual World Series Media Day, where the teams get a break from having reporters crowding into their clubhouse for a day and instead meet them en masse, Super Bowl style. We started this in 2009 at the Great Hall of Yankee Stadium, a tremendous visual that went over so well with all parties involved that baseball has opted to continue doing it each year.

This year, we're gathering in the State Street Pavilion at Fenway, an elite club seating area in the upper deck near the press box featuring plenty of old photos of Red Sox of the past. Here's today's schedule:

1:00-1:45 -- Cardinals group media session
2:00-3:00 -- Cardinals workout
3:00-3:30 -- Manager Mike Matheny/Game One starter Adam Wainwright in Series interview room
4:00-4:45 -- Red Sox group media session
4:50-5:00 -- Red Sox Game One starter Jon Lester
5:10-5:30 -- Red Sox manager John Farrell
5:00-6:00 -- Red Sox workout 

It's slated to be a sunny day with temperatures pushing 70. Too bad we're not opening the series this afternoon, or even tonight because the weather forecast for Game One on Wednesday night is, frankly, yukky.

The high Wednesday is only slated to be 51 degrees with a 50 percent chance of rain during the day. The rain probability drops at night but so does the temperature, which could slide into the 30s -- yes, the 30s. Brrr. 

Keep it here for plenty of news, quotes and quips all through the Series. I'll also be chirping on my Twitter feed with instant updates.
