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’ 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.
