Neyer names each Red Sox 'era'

May, 7, 2010
Rob Neyer has a fun piece on his SweetSpot blog this morning where he goes through the Red Sox by decade and names each decade for a player. For example:

1901-1907: The Jimmy Collins Era
Collins, an outstanding defensive third baseman who spent the latter part of the 1890s starring for Boston's National League franchise, jumped to Boston's American League franchise in 1901, bringing instant credibility to the brand-new franchise. But Collins brought more than credibility; he could still play, batting nearly .300 with power in his first five seasons. But Collins wasn't just a player; he also managed the Red Sox for five-plus seasons, leading the club to a couple of American League pennants and a victory over the Pirates in the first modern World Series.
