Tim Wakefield really has the knuckleball working today. So well, in fact that he’s got catcher Doug Mirabelli diving in the dirt fishing for it. So well, in fact, that even he doesn’t know where it’s going, having already hit a pair of batters through two innings of work.
— One press box observation on the tranquil assembly as Fenway: “Most pathetic crowd ever.”
— If I’m Jerry Remy, I start getting a little nervous after hearing the ground breaking TV analysis of Mike Piazza, with Wakefield pitching in the first: “You have to try to get hitters out here.”
