Retiring number 6

The Red Sox will retire Johnny Pesky’s #6 this weekend during the last series of the season (versus the Yankees). Johnny Pesky (now 89, but that doesn’t stop him from having a myspace profile) has been associated with the Red Sox since the 1940s (albeit with a few years where WWII and getting traded got in the way), but he, if anyone, symbolized the long-lived anguish that the Red Sox lived under until 2004/2007. He deserves his day in the sun at Fenway. Congratulation Johnny!
