-- The Red Sox departed Fenway on Sunday for Tampa Bay and there was yet another themed dress code for this trip.

Players wore beach gear as they boarded the buses, as the temperatures in Tampa are set to be in high 80s.

Brock Holt posted this picture with Mitch Moreland and tagged both of them as their wives, Lakyn and Susannah.

While Joe Kelly went with a straw hat and a statement tank top:

Hanley Ramirez stole the show, though, with his megaphone both before and after the game.

-- Mike Francesa joined Twitter on Friday and has been active on his account ever since.

One might say he’s already addicted to it.

Francesa tweeted 17 times over the weekend about everything from the Preakness to the Mets to his app and golf.

He sent his first tweet from Twitter headquarters in New York City on Friday.

“Long time coming, first time tweeting. Don’t waste my time with dumb stuff,” his first tweet read.

He then followed up with this: “Thinking of broadcasting daily from the Twitter offices for the remainder of my career. That is an office building. Of course, NY city only.”

From there he started tweeting like he’s been doing it forever. He doesn’t follow any accounts and has not yet liked any tweets.

Back in 2012 Francesa declared he would never use Twitter.

He never could have imagined that one day he would not only be tweeting, but he’d get even more high-tech and tweet about his new app.

“In the very near future I’m going to setup a Q and A regarding the upcoming Mike’s On app,” he wrote. “A lot of people have written and commented on the app. They are completely clueless. We have some special things planned in terms of content, relationships and immediacy. Stay tuned.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY: "We needed to get our butts whupped. Come back to reality and take care of business on Monday." -- Terry Rozier, after the Celtics’ 116-86 loss to the Cavs on Saturday
