A Revisionist Red Sox History
Posted on 08/06/2003 in misc
What if the Sox hadn't sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees? What if the Kennedys, and not Tom Yawkey had bought the team? What if Ted Williams didn't miss 6 years due to military service? For that matter, what if Bill Lee had been pitching against Bucky Dent, and not Mike Torrez?
Bill "Spaceman" Lee tackles these, and other issues in his very entertaining book. Bill was one of the great characters of baseball - guys like him aren't allowed in the league anymore. You do have to wade through a bit of socialist drivel and quotes from Mao, but Bill is a socialist, and it is his book.
