If the Red Sox improve to 4-0 in February, it won’t mean a thing... and we will like it anyway.

MLB: Spring Training-Boston Red Sox at Baltimore Orioles
Roe, Roe, Roe, you’re GOAT?

One day after taking a one-game lead in the battle for the Mayor’s Cup, the Red Sox will face the little-brother Rays this afternoon at JetBlue Park at 1:05 p.m. in their quest for the dream season (no losses, ever, from February to October). If it’s like any early Spring Training game, it should pass without incident. If it’s like any Red Sox/Rays game, it’ll feel like getting a tooth pulled.

Friends, is no time for dentistry, but here’s the non-sequitur tooth: This is the gamethread. GROAN. Yeah, well, here is the Boston lineup:

  1. Jackie Bradley Jr., CF
  2. Andrew Benintendi, LF
  3. Rafael Devers, 3B
  4. Mitch Moreland, 1B
  5. Brock Holt, SS
  6. Sandy Leon, C
  7. Sam Travis, DH
  8. Deven Marrero, 2B
  9. Steve Selsky, RF
