managing the Indians? Joel Skinner, if it's the same guy.
I think he was a mid 1980s Harrelson casualty. part of those key Ron Hassey and Joe Cowley aquisitions.
Speaking of Harrelson, was he the one who dumped Bonilla for Jose DeLeon?

I think you're right about the Bonilla trade. He was dealt to Pittsburgh in 1986, and IIRC, Harrelson was the GM at that time. "Hawk" has a great baseball mind, but he sure as hell didn't know what he was doing when he worked in the front office.

Same guy, watched him play in Buffalo when it was the sox AAA farm team. Great "D" no "O".
