Keep your Sox on, Doug's on his way.

So, how was your commute to your job today?

I bet it was nothing compared to that of baseball player Doug Mirabelli on Monday.

Mirabelli, a catcher, was traded by the San Diego Padres to the Boston Red Sox in the morning. Mirabelli promptly boarded a flight in San Diego in hopes of being in uniform Monday night in Boston.

He lands at Logan airport at 6:48 pm and gets to Fenway Park in 13 minutes, thanks to a police escort. Since he was changing into his uniform in the car on the way to the ballpark, Mirabelli was able to be behind home plate at 7:13 to catch the first pitch.

And here I had trouble opening my e-mail when I got to my desk barely on time this morning.
