8 a.m. ET: Now, let’s see how the Red Sox respond after a loss. Good teams bounce back and thrive in the face of adversity, and after dropping a 4-2 decision to the Yankees on Thursday, the Sox will be tested for the first time on Friday. Making life more difficult, however, is the fact that they’ll be going up against the talent-laden Blue Jays in Toronto. Felix Doubront will get the start, and the hope is that he can start off this season on a positive note, much like he did in 2012, when he went 5-2 through the first two months. Doubront will be opposed by Josh Johnson, a very talented 29-year-old who has had trouble staying healthy. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of reception Red Sox manager John Farrell gets on Friday night. He, of course, left his post in Toronto to become Boston’s skipper this past offseason. Considering Farrell’s lack of success north of the border, it’s safe to say the boo birds will be out in full effect. Friday’s game will start up at 7:05 p.m. ET, and all of the action can be found on NESN. NESN’s pregame coverage will kick off at 6 p.m. with Red Sox First Pitch. Be sure to tune in, but also be sure to stop back here for additional commentary and analysis.
