The Red Sox announced pitching hero Tim Wakefield died today.

Wakefield, who pitched for two World Series-winning Sox teams, won 186 games for the team, third behind Cy Young and Roger Clemens.

He is survived by his wife Stacy, son Trevor and daughter Brianna.

Josh Brogadir at WCVB said tonight the station learned a couple weeks ago about Tim Wakefield's battle with cancer but decided not to report it until Wakefield was ready to go public, out of common human decency. Curt Schilling, he continued, has no such decency.

This just adds to the list of despicable acts since he finished playing baseball.

No, not New York. Seattle. Maura McGurk plumbs the depths of Marinerville's hatred for the Sox and, sometimes, all of New England:

One of Matt’s friends didn’t wish to be identified but said that the “transitive properties” of all of New England were to blame for the way Seattle feels about the Sox and their fans. Matt explained that “snotty” New England things like Harvard and the Hamptons were problematic for him.

It's not just that the Blue Jays scored 28 runs at Fenway tonight (fans started chanting "Let's go Blue Jays!"), but the T reports an inbound Green Line trolley mistook itself for a Sox player and died at Fenway.

Seems the Sox and NESN asked Orsillo to video a remembrance for the Remy memorial, then uninvited him for some reason. Here is what he would have said about his longtime broadcast partner and friend.

Dan Kennedy notes the dueling Boston Magazine and Globe stories over the weekend over why David Ortiz got shot in 2019. The Globe does have former BPD Commissioner Ed Davis recounting a disrespected-gangster theory, while BoMag does not; Kennedy notes that Davis, hired by Ortiz, is a security consultant to the Globe, whose owner, of course, is a major shareholder in the Red Sox.
