Boston traffic

From today's Boston Globe:

"It was an exhausting day and game, emotionally more than physically. At 3:30 p.m., a lineup was posted with Doug Mirabelli, acquired yesterday from the Padres, catching. By 3:45, Jason Varitek's name was in the lineup instead. Mirabelli's charter landed at Logan at 6:48, and his police escort arrived at the ballpark at 7, giving Mirabelli 12 minutes to collect his thoughts and get into uiform."

Twelve minutes from Logan to Fenway!? 720 seconds? Okay, he had a police escort, but still -- what route did he take!?

There was a story in NPR about this yesterday. Not only did this guy barely make it to the game, he caught the Padres game just before he got on a plane to Boston.
