Nick Cafardo | Sunday Baseball Notes: Five teams that need to beat the MLB trade deadline - Sports - The Boston Globe

A bunch of notes.

Longtime Red Sox coach, minor league manager, and special assistant Dick Berardino has heard once too often how the Sox and the late Lou Gorman were fleeced on the Jeff Bagwell-Larry Andersen deal in 1990. Berardino was a coach on Joe Morgan’s staff and defends Gorman to this day. “It was the right thing at the right time,” said Berardino. “Andersen really helped us that year (15 appearances, 1.23 ERA in 22 innings) win the AL East division. I really get tired of people bashing Lou for that. Bagwell had been a good hitter but he hadn’t hit more than four home runs in our system at the time. How could anyone project what he ended up doing for Houston? And he had a good career but has been under suspicion for steroid use.” Bagwell hit 449 home runs for the Astros and last year garnered 55.7 of the needed 75 percent of the vote for Hall of Fame induction in his second year of eligibility.
