Well, that was some crummy news to wake up to. Yogi Berra's been a part of my life for about as long as I can remember being alive, and I'm not yet able to write anything meaningful. Fortunately, there's already no shortage of worthy encomiums, a sampling of which I'll offer now... - If you don’t have time to read my friend Allen Barra’s outstanding biography of Yogi, I highly...

1975 Red Sox remind us of a much different time

Bill Foley(@Foles74) Contributing Writer For some reason my dad really disliked Johnny Bench. I’m not sure why, but he still doesn’t like the Hall of Fame catcher of the Big Red Machine. (AP Photo/Harry Cabluck) That, I believe, is the reason I am a Red Sox fan. Sometime in the mid-1970s, my dad, who grew up cheering for Mickey Mantle, abandoned the Yankees for the Sox....
