Who Is The Best Hang On The 2023 Red Sox?

Photo by Billie Weiss/Boston Red Sox/ Plus, who will have a bigger impact on the upcoming season: Richard Bleier or Adalberto Mondesi? If you could hang out with one member of the 2023 Red Sox, who would it be, and what would you do? Would you take Corey Kluber to Vegas to see if his poker face can translate to winnings at an actual poker table? How about hopping on the ferry to Provincetown for a day of bacchanalia on the beach with Kiké Hernandez? What about a road trip up to Bill Lee’s farm in Vermont with Triston Casas, where you’d spend the weekend talking...
