I doubt it. You see if Harrelson spoke about firing LaRussa, or trading Bobby Bonilla, or forcing Carlton Fisk to play leftfield - well then he would be resorting to the truth.
It's so much easier to just make up stories incorporating dead people about trades which you tried to make.
"Mercy..............Stone Pony...............when I was the General Manager of this team I spoke to a now deceased advanced scout about the availability of a high school kid who would soon become a big home run hitter in the major leagues, a now deceased general manager about getting a pitcher who went on to win multiple Cy Young Awards, and a now deceased owner about getting a player who has since died, who if you knew who I was talking about would have made a world...............and I mean a world of difference."
