Fresh off winning their third World Series title in the past 10 years, the Red Sox will be honored this morning with a parade through Boston. The players, who will be riding in duck boats, will begin their trek from Fenway Park and finish on the Charles River. You can see the full parade route here.

The parade is set to begin at 10 a.m. ET, but MLB.com and RedSox.com will have live streaming of the event at 9 a.m.

As Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston notes, even the duck boats have beards:

The Fernando Rodney Experience hasn’t been a good one for the Twins thus far. The veteran closer served up three runs in the bottom of the ninth inning to the Yankees on Thursday afternoon, erasing a 4-1 lead and blowing his third save in five opportunities.

In the ninth, Didi Gregorius reached on a throwing error by Miguel Sano. Giancarlo Stanton then singled, and Gary Sanchez followed up with a walk-off three-run home run.

Rodney, 41, now sports a 6.75 ERA on the year. He inked a one-year, $4.5 million contract with the Twins back in December. The club has an option for next year worth $4.25 million. If things keep going the way they’re going, the Twins aren’t going to want to pick up that option.

The Twins may even want to think about moving Ryan Pressly or Addison Reed into the closer’s role, even if just temporarily. Pressly has been terrific, tossing 13 scoreless innings with 18 strikeouts. Reed has a 2.25 ERA with 12 strikeouts in 12 innings.
