GDT #13: Geared up for the Boston series?

I sure am. Hoo boy playing the Red Sox is always the best time of the year.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Keys to the game

  1. Don't be losing in the eighth inning and then have to face Craig Kimbrel, baseball's scariest human crane.
  2. Confuse and enrage Big Papi by convincing him that "Papi" is really spelled "Poppy," a flower of some import.
  3. Don't hit anything in the outfield because Mookie Betts or Jackie Bradley Jr. will catch it.
  4. Hit 295-foot pop flies for home runs.
  5. Hold back tears when seeing David Price in a Red Sox uniform for the first time. Don't do it. Be strong.
