So never mind that Petey Martinez came back to Fenway last night to throw out the first pitch (when are they going to retire his number and let him open a Dominican food stand outside the ball park?), or that the Sawx ended up going on to win the first game of the season against the hated Yankees 9-7. Or that they resigned Josh Beckett to a four-year, $68 million extension.
