Greener Pastures – Part 1

I suppose I’m unlike most fans in that I usually harbor no ill will towards players that leave the Red Sox, unless they bolt for the Yankees a la Johnny Damon.  Even Jacoby Ellsbury signing with the Yankees didn’t get me that upset.  Usually when a Red Sox player leaves, either via trade or free […]
