Mike Dee came to the Red Sox from the Padres as a sort of package deal with Larry Lucchino. As Chief Operating Officer of The Carmine Hose from 2002-2009, he watched record crowds stream into Fenway for two World Series Championships. Dee is now back in San Diego as CEO of the Padres, who yesterday fired another former Red Sox executive: GM Josh Byrnes. Byrnes was Sox Assistant GM under Theo Epstein until October 2005, when he was hired as Arizona's GM. Look for Theo to scoop up his old buddy and re-unite him with current Cubbie GM Jed Hoyer. Looks like the 'Ivy League Mafia' might be re-grouping.
