Tito's Returning. Melancon's Leaving. DC Departs.

No, it's not what you think.

But Terry Francona has had a change of heart, and will be attending the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park this Friday.

Now who do you think will get the loudest and longest ovation that afternoon?

Here's more from ESPN Boston.

And Mark Melancon, he of the ERA of nearly 50.00, will not be witnessing the anniversary celebrations live, as he was optioned to Pawtucket today, and Junichi Tazawa will replace him on the roster.

And a fond farewell to the legendary Dick Clark, who passed away of heart attack this morning at the age of 82. It was sad seeing him on New Year's the past few years, and I wished he retired after he had his stroke in 2004.

In his memory, here is Dick Clark making a memorable cameo on the great "Police Squad" series from 1982:


Thanks for the memories, Mr. Clark.
