Boston Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino announced last night that, to replace former GM Theo Epstein, the Sox have promoted Ben Cherington and Jed Hoyer, two former Epstein understudies, to co-general managers. Our only thought is: when they come to an impasse on a personnel decision, will they use paper-rock-scissors? Best two-out-of-three? Well, with the matter of Johnny Damon’s return still hanging in the balance, it should be intersting to see what happens.
Our money is in for next year’s season tickets and it looks like, after splitting with our group, we will have another eight games or so, not counting potential playoff contests. Same seats in Section 29… with snow on the ground outside it seems like spring is far off in the future.
