Don't know if you saw this one but the Sox traded for Doug Mirabelli yesterday to specifically handle Tim Wakefields knuckleball (which he had done for the last few years before being included in the Loretta trade.) His replacement Bard had ten passed ball in 5 starts. Wake was on the hill last night against the Yankees. Mirabelli's plane landed at Logan at 6:48. He was given a police escort by Massachusetts staties, changed into his uniform in the car ,got to the ballpark at 7. The game was delayed (conveniently) 4 minutes . He put on his spikes and walked out to warm up Wake. No passed balls and the good guys won 7-3. Who says we don't have our priorities in order using police to escort ballplayers to big games in time.
