The Red Sox are set to land in Japan before noon today, officially kicking off their 18-day, 12-game, three-country marathon road trip, during which they will travel a total of about 15,913 miles (Fort Myers to Chicago to Tokyo to Los Angeles to Oakland to Toronto to Boston) before finally playing their first home game on April 8. To put it in perspective, that's the equivalent of about 75 one-way trips on the Fung Wah bus from Boston to New York City.

If you count the home opener as well, the Sox' next 13 games will be played in five different cities at 10 different starting times, ranging from 6:05 a.m. to 11:05 p.m. EDT. If you find yourself with your head spinning, imagine what the Red Sox must be feeling. To help you make sense of it all, below you'll find the Sox' schedule of games from now until they get their rings at the Fenway Park opener about three weeks from now. All times are Eastern.
