Win Tonight For Johnny

Red Sox legend Johnny Pesky turns 92 today. What better way to pay tribute to the ultimate Red Sox player than to get a win tonight for him? It's sad that this $160 million team would need that kind of motivation, but maybe they can be shamed into doing the right thing. They could use some of his pride in wearing a Boston uniform. All of us recall Johnny's emotional reaction in the clubhouse after the clinching Game 4 in 2004. That was real. We all felt his joy. He deserves a little more joy.
