***NEWS ALERT*** Sox Name Dent

***NEWS ALERT*** Sox Name Dent Manager Boston–(AP) In a bold and surprising move, the Boston Red Sox have hired former Yankee shortstop and nemesis Bucky Dent to succeed Grady Little as the team’s manager. “Sticking the Yanks with Zimmer didn’t work, so we thought we’d try this. We need to exorcise some demons,” said Red Sox President Larry Luchino. Dent’s home run off Mike Torrez in a 1978 playoff game propelled the Yankees to a comeback victory. Zimmer managed the Sox at the time. In a related move, Bill Buckner was hired as a special fielding instructor. ***
