Here's Looking at You, Kid
28-year-old Red Sox GM Theo Epstein was interviewed this morning amid a
snowy Fenway Park by NBC's Matt Lauer on the "Today" show. Asked if he was
feeling pressure in his new post, Epstein said, "A little bit of pressure.
It's been a great public reaction here in Boston. I grew up in the city,
so I know what people want. The fans only want to win, the media really
only wants you to win, and that is what we want too, so in a way, we are
all pulling together, and it's a good feeling." Lauer: "You're being
called the Ben Affleck of baseball, because you're single and young, and
there are bumper stickers I understand in Boston where it says, 'Our
General Manager was Student of the Month at Brookline High School'"
("Today," NBC, 11/27).

"he had trouble
clarifying what his priorities were"
Not a good trait in a GM. "It was
because of my daughter. And because I didn't want to be a fool and leave
my 3 pitchers. And because the GM of a rival team told me not to go there.
And because Tony Soprano sent me messages through my TV..."
Whatever. We'll keep our players,
money and prospects and hire a GM with less of a reputation but one who
wants to be the man who brought Boston the championship. Enjoy Oakland,
