Red Sox in a good mood before Game 1


The Red Sox, as you might expect, are pretty loose.

Jake Peavy’s famed lucky cigar store indian was on third base before this afternoon’s workout.

A shirtless Mike Napoli reclined on the mound for a bit, taking in the sun. Then once the workout started, John Farrell played a little first base, scooping throws from Xander Bogaerts and Will Middlebrooks.

Ryan Dempster has been taking grounders at shortstop. On Wednesday, when the team was off, Ryan came over to Fenway to play catch with his father, Wally.

“What’s more fun that playing catch with your dad?” Dempster said.


Koji Uehara has had his young son, Kazuma, in uniform for about a week now. Stephen Drew’s oldest son, Hank, was around the batting cage on Thursday.

There are also some new t-shirts popping up in the clubhouse that say, “Can I Buy You A Beard.” The Red Sox definitely lead the league in t-shirts.

Andrew Miller, out for the season with a broken foot, had surgery to remove a screw from his foot on Tuesday. He was hobbling around on Wednesday showing it off. It was nearly two inches long.

Miller is supposed to take it easy for a few days. But he’ll be there Saturday.
