Former Sox Exec Lajoie Passes Away

Longtime baseball executive and former Red Sox consultant Bill Lajoie passed away on Tuesday at age 76. Reportedly, he was a prime mover of the trade that sent Hanley Ramirez to the Marlins for Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell. After Theo Epstein's brief departure in 2005, Lajoie helped run baseball operations on Yawkey Way and supposedly pushed for the trade that helped lead to the 2007 World Championship. Lajoie was most famous for building the 1984 World Championship Tigers club.
