FORT MYERS, Fla (CBS) – The Red Sox lineups for their games against Boston College and Northeastern on Saturday are out.
Terry Francona just needs to make sure his players know they actually have a game to play.
When asked if he was excited for Saturday, WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Jonny Miller had to remind Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia he’d be taking the field.
“What’s going on Saturday afternoon?” Pedroia asked.
“You’re playing,” Miller told him.
“Oh yeah, yeah. I’m excited Jonny, I’m excited. We’re going to kick BC’s (behind),” Pedroia joked.
Good to see Pedroia has not lost any of his spunk.

Pedroia will hit second Saturday afternoon against Boston College. He doesn’t want to do too much, but is glad to finally be back on the field after missing more than half the season last year due to a broken foot.
“Just see pitches, just like any normal game,” Pedroia said. “The first game I’m out there, just see pitches, get used to everything and that’s it. I just can’t wait, it’s going to be fun.”
