R.I.P. Zim

Don Zimmer was the Red Sox manager from 1976 through 1980.  While he was not the most successful of managers in that time, he was certainly memorable.  He of course had some problems with certain players on the Red Sox team, most notably Bill Lee and Ferguson Jenkins.  Zimmer came back and was a coach for the Red Sox in 1992.  I remember him mostly as a Yankees bench coach, in particular the incident with Pedro Martinez in 2003.  Unfortunately, Zimmer died yesterday.  He was an interesting character and baseball will miss him.
