Repack Haiku #228 (Carney Lansford)

A play at home plate
Shelved him with torn ligament
Opened door for Boggs
1989 Donruss #243 Carney Lansford
A 1982 injury gave the Red Sox an opportunity to get a good look at a young Wade Boggs. They like what they saw and traded Lansford to Oakland the following off-season. Lansford became an All-Star and a "glue guy" for the Oakland A's late 80's dynasty, so it worked out well for both teams.

Oh, and congrats to the Atlanta Braves for their World Series victory last night!
