John Henry Launches Yet Another Non-Red Sox Venture

Let's see. There's The Boston Globe, NESN, the Liverpool Football Club, Roush Fenway Racing—and, oh yeah, the Boston Red Sox. Well, we can now add another non-baseball activity for the Ichabod Crane-like 'principal owner' of The Carmine Hose: Stat. What is John Henry's new plaything, you ask? According to USAToday, Stat is "a high-powered digital news operation focused on health, medicine and life sciences." Great, something else to feed Henry's Charles Foster Kane obsession. Three last place finishes in the last four years—can we please focus on baseball?
