The Baltimore Orioles honored the late Johnny Pesky with a moment of silence prior to the series opener. On the right sleeve of the Red Sox players, underneath the logo for Fenway’s 100th anniversary, there is a black band of remembrance for the beloved shortstop. On my commute to work on I-93 North two electronic bulletin boards displayed the number six in the unmistakable style of Red Sox home jersey numbers.

Yes, Mr. Red Sox is missed, especially as recent clubhouse controversies resurfaced in the form of an article by Jeff Passan. No reason to rehash the details here, because they aren’t important. The game is important. Pesky would be the first to say, “Play ball!”

Prior this game Bobby Valentine took a moment to kiss Dustin Pedroia. It didn’t seem to be a peck of affection but a gesture of accusation. “I know it was you, Pedroia. You broke my heart.”
