PLAYERS: Theo Epstein
TEAMS: Boston Red Sox
The bats woke up. Just in time. Wednesday night in Miami, the Red Sox scored double-digit runs to take two of three against the Marlins. It's the most they've scored in the last six games. Actually, it was more than they had scored in the previous four games. The win should have the Sox feeling better about things heading into an off-day in Chicago. They've got three more interleague road games, spending a weekend at Wrigley Field for a series that a lot of people will be watching. With Theo Epstein looking down from his suite in Chicago, there will...

The new Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations has moved on to the Windy City, and with that, he has new challenges. However, after spending a decade in Boston, the Epstein era won...

Theo Epstein Should Be Remembered More for Successes With Red Sox Than Mistakes

It was likely an awkward feeling for Theo Epstein. On one hand, the Cubs president of baseball operations took pleasure in his team's ability to blank the Red Sox 3-0 in Friday's win. On the other hand, Epstein -- the former Sox general manager -- was forced to watch the continuation of Boston's swoon. After all, he crafted the majority of that team before Ben Cherington...

Ryan Dempster Shows He Might Be 'Monster' Theo Epstein Described With Huge Game Against Red Sox (Video)

Does Theo Epstein have a crystal ball? When he was talking about a "monster" and the Red Sox, we thought he was referring to some tough expectations.

The Cubs ace had a monster effort to lead his team to a win on Friday, both on the mound and at the plate. NESN Nation...

Quote of the Day

“I think an objective look at the 10 years we had there showed some things that are not really up for dispute.  I think we did a great job drafting, great job developing players, we did a nice job in trades, we did a pretty nice job on buy-low free agents, and then we had a very spotty track record with higher profile free agents." -Theo Epstein reflecting on his tenure...
