TTM Request

Fresh off my fantastic responses from Tim Wakefield and Jonathan Papelbon, I’ve decided to dip my toe into the TTM waters once again. Who am I choosing this time?

Well, I’m going out on a limb with this one. I’m attempting Red Sox owner, John Henry. I’ve never tried a member of the off-the-field personnel before. I’ve only done players and coaches. But, I figured it was worth a shot. One thing that is different about someone like Henry is that he has a day job. Unlike a players whose main responsibility is to play baseball, Henry has to do something with the company that allowed him to buy the Sox in the first place, right? I can imagine the players and coaches having some downtime during the day. But, the chairman of John Henry Co must have some duties to attend to during the day, correct? So, I’m not expecting a lot form this request. Frankly, a response similar to Wake and Pap would be fabulous.

But, it should be obvious why the attempt is warranted. John Henry has proven himself to be an excellent owner. He cares about the fans, and how they relate to his team. Sure, some of the ideas the Sox come up with are a bit corny. Sure, Henry might not be Mr. Personality. But, the Sox have two rings since he took over. What more can a fan want?

So, I’m excited to see how this one turns out. Anyone else ever had any luck with front office staff? As always, I’ll let you know how it goes.

Keep your fingers crossed.


  1. i saw that a few people had success with frank mccourt a couple of years ago. i wouldn't expect that these days.

    for me personally, i had a success with vin scully last season.

  2. Yeah, McCourt might be a long shot these days. Unless, I suppose, you included some incriminating evidence on his wife.
