Tony Jackson of the LA Daily News was just on Boston’s WEEI and stated (take this for what it is worth) that the chances of Theo Epstein being named the new LA GM by the end of the week were better than 50/50.

Presumably, Epstein would not be Tommy Lasorda’s first, second or third choice. Given everything we’ve seen going down in Chavez Ravine over the past year, it is equally hard to understand why said position would appeal to Epstein.

Having no inside information of my own, I can only wonder why it is so hard to believe that Epstein might in fact, spend 12 months or more outside of baseball. Is it also completely impossible to envision a scenario in which Epstein returns to Fenway?
