You wonder what might have happened had the Sox said yes to this proposed deal from the Yankees according to Jeff:

"The Yankees wanted to send us Bernie Williams and Hal Morris for Eric King and Steve Lyons. Now think about what would have happened to our team. Morris was a line drive hitter and a good glove man at first, we had Robin at third. Williams and Lance Johnson would have covered a lot of ground in the outfield and Frank would have been the DH. Think we would have won a few games?

Larry Himes the Sox G.M., said no to it.

Hal Morris was from my hometown. He would have been a much bigger deal to me if he played for the Sox.
