The Thawing of The Commander continues.

I like this move- Carlton is a HOF player who was with the sox for 13 years.
You dont hand them out like candy but he is deserving.

That coaching staff may have some help in spring training next year. Carlton enjoys ozzie,walk,harold and joey- that much is clear. He might just show up for some Arizona sun and help out for spring training. Jerry Reinsdorf is clearly is extending another olive branch to Carlton. Might as well tie up all these loose ends in this special two season period.

Very cool....glad to see it.

By the way, did the Red Sox present him with a ring after they won it all? (Seems to me like they gave almost everyone a ring, so I'd be surprised if they didn't).

The Sox handed out around 400 rings. When I visited Billy Pierce in May I saw his. Aparicio, Minoso, the Nellie Fox family and Fisk also were on the list to receive.

When I visited with Roland Hemond he had spent over a month traveling the country handing out rings to former players, and members of the organization (i.e. scouts...)

is the bike he mentions the one the team got him? whatever bad blood there was it seems like the sox have done a lot to try to make up for it.

Yes they did according to the Trib, but the way they check their facts, who knows?
