The Globe's Nick Cafardo has the details of how a representative of Major League Baseball questioned Terry Francona during last Wednesday night's game about whether he was wearing a jersey. Francona wears his familiar fleece pullovers because of circulation issues, and MLB has been on his case about this.
Let's get this straight:
1) MLB looks the other way when aging ballplayers hit record-breaking numbers of home runs. (And don't forget about juiced Giambi hitting two HRs off Pedro when it counted in 2003.)
2) It kicks Johnny Pesky, Mr. Red Sox, out of the Sox dugout.
3) During an important series, and with a Yankee runner on base, an MLB security person has the time to bother Tito.
