Your former manager is a color analyst, your current general manager is being tracked like Big Foot and the quest to replace one and retain the other continues. That gives you very few avenues for an answer to your Red Sox-related questions, unless you choose to drop your question into Tony Lee's mailbag. Doing so can yield that Christmas morning kind of feel if and when our Red Sox writer chooses your inquiry when he answers the best of the bunch each Tuesday. You can also drop Tony a line on Twitter.

Theo Epstein was in Chicago...or was he?

Ohmygod, ohmygod, ohmygod!Ask yourself this...if you saw Theo Epstein out in public would you know who he was?I mean, I was in Fenway Park a while back, saw a guy who looked like the Boston Red Sox GM and STILL asked myself..."is that dude flanked by security guards Theo Epstein".It was.And if you ask Chicagoan Noah Pinzur, he saw the 37-year-old baseball wunderkind...

2011 Red Sox Season in Review

Now that some of the dust has settled on what was probably the most hyped Red Sox team in history, it’s now time to reflect and review the 2011 Red Sox season. This team was in first place in mid-August even with the lackluster performances of John Lackey and Carl Crawford. Then September happened. In the worst postseason collapse in the history of baseball the Red Sox went from...

David Ortiz on WEEI on Saturday

This morning David Ortiz called into WEEI this morning to talk about a lot of things Red Sox.  He talked about the collapse, if he thought players stopped caring and that he called a meeting with a players himself.  He spoke about his free agency, if he would like to come back and if he could see himself in another uniform.  It's probably the most sullen I've heard Papi...

David Ortiz Produces Both On & Off the Field

Sure, the Boston Red Sox are coming off the greatest collapse in the history of baseball according to many. Most of those people tend to forget the 2004 ALCS between the Red Sox and New York Yankees for some reason, but I digress… One person who has nothing to be ashamed of with his season is DH David Ortiz. He did more than he could this season to get the Red Sox to the playoffs...

Red Sox Mailbag: John Lackey, Curt Young and the Prince Fielder Sweepstakes

The Patriots are 4-1, the Bruins have raised the banner and if the NBA ever got its act together, we'd be weeks away from seeing the Celtics take the floor. Yet, we're still talking baseball. Here is the latest edition of the Red Sox Mailbag. Enjoy. 1. I'm hearing the Indians are not going to pick up Grady Sizemore’s option? What are the chances the Red Sox pick him...

Jonathan Papelbon -- Partying Like the Red Sox Didn't Choke

It doesn't matter that his team was eliminated from the MLB playoffs in one of the most epic September slides in baseball history -- Boston Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon went out this weekend and partied his face off anyway!!! Papelbon -- who… Permalink

Theo Epstein Lands in Chicago in UFO Wearing an Elvis Costume

DATELINE: HUMOR! Reports suggest Theo Epstein was in Chicago this past weekend, interviewing for a job with the Cubs. Red Sox fans seem to buy it, but astute observers don’t believe it until they hear that a man in a gorilla suit has been seen on Lake Shore Drive. Some people see lights in the night sky and presume the aliens are about to inquire where the leader is. Sometimes...

In booth, Francona mixes strategy with wit

Time after time during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series on Saturday, FOX broadcaster Terry Francona was sharp, swiftly moving between the funny and the intricate -- not too unlike the news conferences he used to hold as the skipper of the Red Sox.

Theo Epstein Definitely Maybe Seen Near Wrigley Field

The Chicago Tribune reported yesterday that a Lakeview resident, and lifelong Cubs fan, was 99.9 percent sure he saw Theo Epstein at a Starbucks kinda near Wrigley Field. Well, if it's in The Chicago Tribune. . . it has to be true. I mean, It's THE Tribune. It's not like the report came from some blog where they do their "reporting" out of their basement while...

Good Job, Tito

I enjoyed hearing Terry Francona as the color commentator during the first two games of the ALCS. He was knowledgeable, likeable and rather self-deprecating in his brief stint in the Fox booth. Unfortunately, it was just for the first two games.Tito certainly has a future in the broadcast booth should he choose to take a year or two off before heading back to the dugout.Fox can now...

HBT: Chicago hope? Epstein spotted near Wrigley

HBT: A life-long Cubs fan says he conversed with Theo Epstein at a coffee shop near Wrigley Field.

Cafardo On Epstein, Red Sox, Sabathia, Rays

If Theo Epstein winds up taking the Cubs' GM job, then the spotlight again will be directed at Red Sox president/CEO Larry Lucchino, writes Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.  Even the club tabbed longtime exec Ben Cherington as general manager, it would take time before Cherington would have complete control over the operations.  Here's more from Cafardo.. There'...
