Sox 99 – John Harrington

It was not easy to find supporters of John Harrington in the late 90's. Unofficially, Harrington was CEO of the Red Sox. Officially, however, he headed only the Yawkey Trust, which took over the team after Tom Yawkey's death in 1976. After much bickering and behind-the-scenes maneuvering, the triumvirate of Harrington, Haywood Sullivan and Jean […]

The issue this time concerned team physician Dr Arthur Pappas, who had also been a limited partner of the team since 1977. The […]

Where’s the Rooster?

Rick Burleson, where are you? I'd like to put the Rooster, now 62 years old, in a time machine and transport him back 40 years to 1974, when he took over the Sox shortstop job. Burleson and his attitude would look great on the '14 Sox.   Down in Fort Myers, the team again has […]
