The NYT has been looking to do this for some time now. Frankly, they're short on money, and they really need to divest their non-core stuff. I guess they have not been able to find a buyer to take the entire load off their hands, so they are letting it go in bits and pieces. I doubt there will be any great changes in the operation of the team.

Maybe now Red Sox batters will be allowed to hit to right more often.
