One thing I find about ex-Sox players is that after many years, the negative memories fade and the positive ones are all that remain (except for Jose Paniagua). I even have positive feelings about Magglio these days.
This is a great post. I wish Bobby the best. I didn't realize the extent of his injuries. His 05 performance was incredible, and I will always be grateful for that.
