YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN IT!!!

1941 Cleveland gives the managerial reins to Lou Boudreau, the team’s shortstop. Boudreau is all of 24, like Fred Clarke and Jim McCormick before him, making him one of the youngest player-managers ever. No manager since 1901 has been as young as Boudreau; only McCormick (23) was younger.

2002 Speaking of young hires… The Red Sox hire Theo Epstein, just 28, to be the General Manager. Epstein would solve two curses: Boston and Chicago – and seems likely to get a Hall of Fame nod.

TRANSACTION WIRE:

1969 California sends Pedro Borbon, Jim McGlothen, and Vern Geishert to the Reds for Alex Johnson and Chico Ruiz.

1991 St. Louis trades Ken Hill to the Expos for Andres Galarraga.

2003 The Marlins send Derrek Lee to the Cubs for Hee-Seop Choi and Mike Nannini.

2005 Philadelphia sends Jim Thome to the White Sox for Aaron Rowand, Daniel Haigwood, and (later) Gio Gonzalez.
