Editor’s note: T.R. Sullivan covered the Texas Rangers over 32 years for the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and MLB.com and is sharing his “memoirs” with this newsletter. In the latest two-part installment, Sullivan looks back at the career of Tim Grieve, who is retiring after 55 years in baseball.
The opposing general manager had a great offer for Rangers GM Tom Grieve.
An alliance. Work together. The two of them and a couple of other general managers.
They would work in cahoots with each other, pass on the latest gossip and whatever other inside information they could dig up on the other teams. Keep each other up to date with the latest dope to be found in baseball. It was an arrangement common with other general managers in the game.
Collusion at its finest.
Good stuff. I can’t wait for the next one. The 1986 season was truly epic and fun. I bet I went to 70 games that year.
