* Two Theories On Theo’s Departure

Personal issues or fire sale.

So Theo Epstein is no longer the General Manager of the Red Sox. Always a professional, Theo took the high road in his press conference and gave little insight about why he is leaving. I have two theories.

Theory number one. Theo is getting married and wants his privacy for the next year.

Theory number two. The Red Sox are getting ready for a fire sale, preparing to trade Manny (and perhaps some others) and not planning to re-sign their top free agents (like Johnny Damon). And Theo wants no part of it. He’d prefer to leave with his reputation – and the team – intact.

Time will tell.
