Red Sox heating up ahead of Patriots’ Day game vs. O’s

Like the 26.2-mile course that runs through the suburbs to Boylston Street in Boston, the Major League Baseball season is a marathon, not a sprint.

The Red Sox are trying to pick up the pace, though.

Boston seeks its first series victory of the year when it hosts the Baltimore Orioles in the finale of a four-game set Monday in the annual Patriots’ Day morning game.

My cousin is running in the Boston Marathon- wish her the best of luck….

Bradfo: Are They Really In The Best Shapes Of Their Lives?

“I’m a machine,” said a smiling (Sam) Travis.

Then there is everyone else.

Brock Holt: “I’m sure I’ve been in better shape, but I’m going to say, ‘Yes, I’m in the best shape of my life,’ because that’s what we’re supposed to say.”

Matt Barnes: “No. We had a month less to train and I went on my honeymoon.”

Ryan Brasier: “I’ve never been in the best shape of my life.”

Astros’ Alex Bregman Says There’s ‘No Other City’ He’d Rather Beat Than Boston

There appears to be a rivalry brewing between the Boston Red Sox and Houston Astros. Or, at the very least, there’s a rivalry brewing between Astros third baseman Alex Bregman and the city of Boston.

Apparently, Red Sox fans have no love loss for Bregman, who was a focal point of the American League Championship Series between Houston and the Red Sox, as his social media antics riled up not only inhabitants of New England but those inside the Red Sox organization, too.

So when the Red Sox dispatched Bregman (2-for-15) and the Astros in five games, Sox fans lined up for their pound of social media flesh. Bregman apparently heard them loud and clear as he revealed recently on the “Going Deep with Chad and JT” podcast.

You have to forgive him- he’s still bitter about being thrown out of the Athenaeum when he mistook it for a public library.
