Joe Kelly Asked Red Sox’s Outfield One Small Question Before Opening Day


April 3, 2017

Joe Kelly just wants to dance.

The hard-throwing reliever is no stranger to joking around on Twitter, and he showed Monday he already is in midseason form by making a special request to three of his Boston Red Sox teammates just before their Opening Day game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Fenway Park.

Kelly asked Andrew Benintendi, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Chris Young if he could join the Red Sox outfield’s now-famous postgame celebration this season.

This seems like a reasonable request, so long as Kelly performs well in his first season as a full-time reliever. Boston’s outfielders might be hesitant to include the right-hander, though, as they really hit their stride with their dance moves last season.

We’re just wondering why Kelly didn’t include Mookie Betts in his tweet. Perhaps the 2016 American League MVP runner-up already tried to put the kibosh on Kelly’s request.
