Red Sox Chick/Toeing the Rubber

Because you always need a backup plan

The Long Goodbye

For the love of all that is good in the world could we just get some closure in the Theo Epstein saga?

I’m begging here.

I didn’t think anything would be worse than the “They’re close to a deal….they aren’t close to a deal” stories coming out every ten minutes…but now we have the “They’re close to announcing the deal…they aren’t anywhere near announcing the deal” and I just sit here and shake my head.  Do it, don’t do it…at this point I couldn’t care less I just want the Red Sox to be able to move on. With or without Theo, at this point it makes no nevermind to me.  Just freaking do it.

Although I will say this, the one aspect of this that I’m enjoying is how, seemingly, the Red Sox aren’t rolling over for the Cubs.  Theo is the one who is breaking his contract, the Cubs are the team getting one of the best General Managers in baseball, so the Red Sox absolutely deserve something more than a little cash or a few throwaway players.  There is a part of me, though, that will just be happy for it to be all over, regardless of what the Red Sox get for Theo.  (But I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’d consider it well worth it all if somehow John Lackey is pitching somewhere that isn’t Fenway Park.)

  1. Can you imagine being Theo right now? I bet all he wants to do is pack up his office and get his family to Chicago. I’m sorry to lose him but they’ve got to let the poor man go! I agree that we do need to get adequate compensation, but I can’t deal with the back and forth either. I’m only checking two sites now (neither of them being Boston.com), every other day to see if they’ve reached an agreement.

    Can you imagine being Cherington, just wanting to do his job and help put the pieces of this team back together? Can you imaging being Theo, eager to get going with the Cubs? This is a hold up for everyone and it needs to end soon.
