Frank Malzone, who was an All-Star third baseman for seven seasons and a 3x Gold Glove winner for Boston in the late 1950’s/early 1960’s, died at the age of 85.
Malzone played for the Red Sox from 1955-1965 and for the California Angels in 1966. He finished runnerup for the ROY in 1957, when he finished 7th in the MVP voting.
He also received MVP consideration in 1958, 1959, and 1962.
His 162 g. average was .2744-15-82 with an OPS+ of 92.
The Philadelphia Eagles let go of Chip Kelly. It’s hard enough to coach in the NFL. Taking on more responsibilities, like GM and/or personnel decisions, was probably too much for him. My feeling is that he bit off more than he could chew in wanting total control.
As far as Chapman goes, we’ll have to wait and see about a possible suspension for the domestic issue. But the Yanks knew about that going into the deal.
