John Farrell Says Red Sox’ Subdued Playoff Celebration Shows Team Is Looking at Bigger, Better Possibilities (Video)


The Red Sox are headed to the postseason for the first time since 2009, but the team isn’t ready to break out the champagne just yet.

The Sox had an honorable win over the Orioles to clinch a playoff berth, but manager John Farrell said before Friday’s game that his team’s businesslike approach to the postseason is clear. The Sox’ decision not to react to the win with a raucous celebration wasn’t dictated from the top down, but rather was a choice made among the team.

Farrell said his players have their eyes on a bigger prize — like clinching the AL East on Friday. Check out what else the skipper had to say in the above video.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
