Welcome to the weekend, we made it! The Red Sox take on the Minnesota Twins at 1:05 PM ET. Alex Verdugo made his debut today so the roster is really coming together. The Celtics and Bruins are both off so it’s like a day of summer sports coming early. Except without the Olympics happening. Only big birthday for a Sox player today is Lefty Grove, who would be 121 today. The Hall of Farmer finished his career with exactly 300 wins, which meant a bit more in those days - he competed 298 games during his remarkable career. Enjoy the day, talk about what you want, and be good to one another.
