(The Lyres’ “How Do You Know?” is a pretty hard song to learn)
The Boston Red Sox have announced that former general manager Theo Epstein will return to the organization he guided to a World Series championship in 2004.
It’s still unclear exactly what job title Epstein will hold with the team.
Principal owner John Henry, chairman Tom Werner, president/CEO Larry Lucchino and Epstein released a statement.
“As you know, we have spoken frequently during the last 10 weeks,” the statement read. “We have engaged in healthy, spirited debates about what it will take over the long-term for the Red Sox to remain a great organization and, in fact, become a more effective organization in philosophy, approaches and ideals. Ironically, Theo’s departure has brought us closer together in many respects, and, thanks to these conversations, we now enjoy the bonds of a shared vision for the organization’s future that did not extension October 31. With this vision in place, Theo will return to the Red Sox in a full-time baseball operations capacity, details of which will be announced next week.”
