BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- The Red Sox will try for a 3-0 World Series lead on the Dodgers tonight and, if you haven’t noticed, these guys are having a blast.
Rick Porcello, Xander Bogaerts, and Jackie Bradley Junior discussed Boston’s camaraderie.
"AC [Alex Cora] coming in here really was able to galvanize this entire crew and bring us together," Porcello said. "The fact that, at this point in the year, with the amount of time we spend around each other, and guys still are looking forward to opportunities to be together on flights, be together in the clubhouse? That's huge."
"It's been fun, man," Xander Bogaerts said. "We enjoy winning, we enjoy being around each other, coming to the field. I think we enjoy each other that much that, on our off days, we kind of do stuff together, even if we have to come to the field and get treatment. I think we see each other a lot, and it's been fun."
Jackie Bradley Jr. said he thinks the great cameraderie started during early spring training.
"We see each other more than our families," he said. "It's very important to not only learn your teammates, but to love them as well. We're going to be seeing a lot of each other. We don't need any tension, and we'll be able to focus and lock it in all year."
Porcello will oppose Walker Buehler tonight.
