I'm drawing a blank when the last one was. Bo Jackson was but not with the Sox.
And that is exactly why I think we should just let him go. I think most are scared he's going to excel with the Rangers maybe, he has a better line up around him. But since he's been here, he plays when he wants to. I think the league is aware of that to. I agree with the last few posters, if you can wrangle a midlevel prospect fine, if not see ya. Then you can use that money to nab Granderson while he'll be on the cheap or some other lead off type hitter.
