It’s Marathon Monday, and that means the Red Sox are playing way, way earlier than many baseball players are usually awake. That’s the magic of the special day, of course, regarded as a holiday by some and a big annoyance by others.
Still, the Sox usually have success with the early games, so that makes the early start a little more palatable in Boston. Except, it would seem, when it comes to playing the Tampa Bay (Devil) Rays. Joe Maddon’s squad is 3-0 on Patriots’ Day against the Sox, a trend the team would like to see end this time around.
NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is ready for the festivities to get going bright and early. See more in the above video.
