At the start of both yesterday's and today's game, Hawk mentioned that the Sox starter was ready to pitch but that they were waiting for the clock to official read 7:07.

Can someone explain this? Is there some reason why they had to wait specifically for 7:07? Seems like sort of an odd detail.

Maybe Carlos was in the head again.

I always thought that they waited for the clock to turn over so they could have an exact official time that the game started. That way they know exactly how long the game took.

That is my thought. They've waited until 7:08 before too.
