To those of you wondering, “What’s the word on the bird?” I wish I could offer a definitive answer, other than to say the official response from the Red Sox this morning is that they are looking into the fate of the little fella and whether he left Fenway under his own power or was escorted off the premises.
There is some debate on Morrissey Boulevard whether to assign the Globe Spotlight team to the case. One possible clue? There were a few black feathers, a pile of tiny bones, a hibachi grill and six empty beer cans spotted by David Wells’s locker. But without official confirmation, we are reluctant to rush to judgment.
