MLB: Boston Red Sox at Toronto Blue Jays Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, look what happened four years ago today:

Happy Vlad-Signing-versary everyone! Here’s a little sneak preview of what Vladdy participating in the home run derby will look like:

The Blue Jays have sadly bid adieu to the Royals and are welcoming the Red Sox into town. The Red Sox were swept by the Yankees in a two game series in London over the weekend. Let’s keep the winning going.

Here are today’s lineups. Teoscar is apparently out with a sore shoulder, Drury’s in right, Smoak bats cleanup, and Jansen will catch for Thornton.

Today's Lineups

RED SOX BLUE JAYS
Mookie Betts - RF Eric Sogard - DH
Rafael Devers - 3B Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B
Xander Bogaerts - SS Lourdes Gurriel - LF
J.D. Martinez - DH Justin Smoak - 1B
