Red Sox Wednesday continues with the news that Theo Epstein is headed to Wrigley Field.

Does this mean Bill James' job is in peril?
Buy on the rumor, sell on the announcement.
, I think if they reel in Valentine, yeah.
Wouldn't Bobby V clash too much with management? Or do they need an A List, kick ass guy to restore credibility? What about Mr. Maddon from the Rays?
 That's what I would think; the ultimate panic move. I also question Maddon's credibility if he were to give up what he's got going on in Tampa for a roster he can whip three ways coming home on Sunday with his old team. But then, what is the financial forecast down there at the moment? If they're in it for real, he could be looking at an extension real soon.
And if Maddon were to go, wouldn't it be kinda funny if he landed in Chi-town...
Way to go Lackey, Lester, et al., not only did you do the biggest choke job down the stretch, but both the manager who won for the first time in 86 years is gone and now the architect of those two WS winning teams is gone as well. Gonna be so much fun kicking your asses next year.
Boston is a mess right now. First they've got to get a GM. How long is that going to take?
I think thelarmis asked in a previous thread why nobody is getting all over Varitek for the clubhouse problems. They are, believe me. He is getting killed on the radio.
Carl Crawford now looks like a good guy. That's how far the status of almost everyone concerned has sunk. It's amazing. It's too ugly even for me to enjoy!
 I bet Youkilis is feeling okay by comparison...
