I was shocked to see that you guys didn't sign a black free agent until 1993. How does that happen? Bizarre. I knew you guys had turned down Mays and Jackie, but I thought that ended with Yawkey leaving.
Anyway, it's good so far. I just wish I didn't live in the middle of nowhere so I could have had it autographed during his book tour. Good luck next year, you guys. If my team doesn't make it, I'll be rooting for yours... since it pisses the Yankees off so much.
What's the name of it?
I knew about the black FA thing. Alot of black FAs have said they don't want to go to Boston for that reason. They had that racist label over them for a while. I think it's pretty much gone now though...
