Sporting News – [Ric] Flair stopped by the clubhouse prior to Tuesday’s game to meet second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who is a big fan. In fact, the Boston Herald reports Pedroia has a signed Flair robe handing above his locker.
Not that I am complaining, but what was Ric Flair doing with the Red Sox? Was he really just visiting to meet a huge fan? Shouldn’t Pedroia be focused on playing to secure the Wild Card rather than snapping photos with The Nature Boy? Maybe the Red Sox thought if they brought in one of the greatest champions of all time the team will pick up their play. Well they were wrong. The team couldn’t even turn on the jets for a living legend, ugh.
