The Sox are in a real mess. They were on the verge of building a Red Auerbach-like aura for their management team. Now, they are a few moves away from becoming the Bruins.
Who will be the next GM? Jerry Kapstein? Jim Beattie? Bozo the Clown? If those are the only choices, they should just keep the multi-headed monster in place until they find a candidate with the same skill set as Theo (good communicator, ability to blend sabermetrics and old-school scouting, long-term vision). Of course, if those are the only choices someone needs to slap Lucchino upside the head every day for botching the Epstein negotiations. In lieu of that, bite the bullet and sign Bowden. I’m not a huge fan of Bowden but, at the least, he’s shown an ability to think creatively.
John Henry save us and yourself.
