The Red Sox and Blue Jays kick off their four-game series a paid seven-inning games today, the first (2:10 p.m., NESN, MLBN out-of-market) pitting yesterday’s likely starters against each other in Garrett Richards and Robbie Ray.

The lineups are also unchanged, meaning Xander Bogaerts will sit for the opener. If you want to read more about the matchup you can read yesterday’s game story. Beats me having to cut and paste it in here.

That means, however, I have to fill out the text to 150 words or I’ll get thrown in Vox Media jail. So here is the Ted Lasso darts speech:

You know, Rupert, guys have underestimated me my entire life. And for years, I never understood why. It used to really bother me. But then one day, I was driving my little boy to school and I saw this quote by Walt Whitman, and it was painted on the wall there. It said, “Be curious, not judgmental.” I like that.

So I get back in my car and I’m driving to work, and all of a sudden it hits me. All them fellas that used to belittle me, not a single one of them were curious. You know, they thought they had everything all figured out. So they judged everything, and they judged everyone. And I realized that their underestimating me... who I was had nothing to do with it. ‘Cause if they were curious, they would’ve asked questions. You know? Like, “Have you played a lot of darts, Ted?”

Barbecue sauce.

Barbecue sauce. Enjoy the games.
