I Love A Parade

Red Sox
The Red Sox parade begins at 10 today, and thousands are already lining up on the route. The Globe has the details on the parade, including a map of the route. For those out of the local area, the parade can be seen on ESPN News and/or MLB.com. The Herald’s Michael Silverman says the parade will make believers out of the players who still think they may be dreaming this. The Globe’s Jim McCabe reports that although Nomar Garciaparra is back in Boston, he won’t be participating in the parade, but he is very happy for his old teammates. Meanwhile Rhode Islanders need not fear. There will be a parade in the ocean state, but as the ProJo’s Kevin McNamara explains, there simply hasn’t been time to plan it yet.

Personally, I think it’s Pedro’s new Shaughnessy hairstyle that might be messing him up, but whatever is going on, Martinez needs to get back on track or he can forget about George Steinbrenner dangling many millions for many years on a guy with John Burkett stuff.
