Red Sox general managers through the years
During his remaining years as GM, Gorman's Red Sox never got close to another World Series. His free agent busts of Matt Young and Jack Clark loomed along with failing to re-sign Bruce Hurst and Mike Boddicker.
In 1994, he gave up the general manager role and became a vice president in the baseball operations department for the team through 1996. He died on opening day this season.
