Jesse "The Crab" Burkett was 36 years old when he was traded to Boston from St. Louis. It was not a very good trade for Boston as they gave up future slugger George Stone to get Burkett. Stone would go on to have a very good future while, and in particular a monster 1906 season. Burkett meanwhile was decent in 1905 for Boston but was out of baseball afterwards. He did finish in the top ten in home runs, triples, and runs scored. The oufielder was clearly past his prime but still managed to have a decent season.
Burkett only spent one season in Boston. He had a decent season but it did not have a lot of effect on his Hall of Fame merits.
