Lucchino, Sox Duck an Embarrassing, Uncomfortable Press Conference By Issuing A Public Statement: Theo Epstein Will Be Called General Manager:
Theo, Larry, Henry finally admit that contract negotiations with Theo led to a fractured relationship and Theo's "Gorillas In The Midst" Escape...I guess the P.R. consultant told them that it is better to come clean late than ever...The sham public

"The Red Sox announced Tuesday that Epstein would resume his old duties, nothing more and nothing less than when he left on Halloween.
While Theo was contemplating returning to the organization in an advisory role, Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said in a statement, "He and I talked and agreed it was best for the organization if he returned as general manager, a title more appropriate for him because it accurately reflects the role he will play."
