The Red Sox have a 99.9 percent chance of making the playoffs this season. We know what happened the last time they had a 99.9 percent chance of making the postseason, but this year is not 2011 for many reasons. One big change is that most of Boston’s key players have taken to growing facial hair.

If you decide to give that a shot, don’t sweat the 5 o’clock shadow at work.
Just tell ‘em you’re trying to catch up with Mike Napoli.
