Our Port of Call

Mike Port has accepted a position with Major League Baseball as Vice President of Umpiring. Best of luck to the 12-year veteran of the Red Sox organization, who has recovered splendidly from the heart attack he had last year. I suppose there’s only so much of Larry Lucchino anyone, including the former recipient of the Boston Baseball Writers Association’s “Good Guy” Award, can take. Maybe Port can exert some pressure and influence on Bob Watson, whose title has been exalted to “Vice President, Rules & On-Field Operations.” I guess “Red Sox Gadfly” is Watson’s unofficial title.
