The Red Sox’ Youth Movement

It appears that Red Sox owner John Henry is adding a third trophy to the case:

Red Sox owner John Henry is engaged to girlfriend Linda Pizzuti . . .

. . . It will be the first marriage for Pizzuti, who has been dating the millionaire businessman since she was introduced to him last summer at Alibi, the bar at the Liberty Hotel. Henry, the 59-year-old founder of the Boca Raton-based investment firm John W. Henry & Co., has one daughter from his 14-year marriage to Peggy. He was also married once before.

Pizzuti, 30, is from Lynnfield, and she and her family are in the real estate development business. She’s been a near-constant companion of the Sox owner in recent months, traveling with him to Europe and hosting parties on his 164-foot yacht.

According to my inside sources, Red Sox’ advisor Bill James is furious that Henry would enter into a long term contract with someone over 30.

Maybe the real reason the Red Sox didn’t sign Mark Texiera wasn’t Scott Boras’ actions or the Yankees big money but that Henry’s second wife (divorce finalized just last year) is walking away with the extra millions needed to secure Texiera.

It’s a 2 year deal with a mutual option.  Her buy-out is reportedly $4M, or more than Varitek.

I’m with Jason…that pre-nup must be a mile long.

If she only got a $4M buyout from a billionaire maybe she should see if Boras does work with pre-nups or divorces because she got taken.

BTW – Should we expect to see her on The Real Housewives of Beantwown show?

I can hear Henry’s daughter crying:  “Dad, stop marrying my friends”
