"And so, just three short years after celebrating Theo Epstein as their shining baby boy, the Red Sox are smearing their once-favorite son. They are trying to make him look like a spoiled and ungrateful brat, which makes you wonder whether things at Fenway Park ever change at all.
Theo could be gone soon, Red Sox followers. It may be just a matter of time now. Negotiations between Epstein and club president Larry Lucchino long ago became personal, so Lucchino and friends have launched into spin control, full speed ahead. Young Theo Epstein, it seems, has been ousted from the circle of trust as if he were a hardball embodiment of the unraveling Gaylord Focker."
Once again, lawyer Larry lets his ego get in the way of what is best for the Sox. In 3 short years in Boston, Lucchino has built up quite a list of bully blunders; Look for another disgraceful exit from the bridge burning ex-Oriole, ex-Padre spin doctor.
