Stop the Insanity (Before It's Too Late)
Well, I wonder how long Theo and Larry/John are going to flounder around and pretend that they don't need each other. It's getting pretty silly now, with Theo talking to Japan about baseball consulting and whatnot. Also, Larry/John are doing a poor job veiling their knowledge of the fact that although there are options available out there, no one is better for the Red Sox than Theo Epstein. And as far as I know, he is still available.
I think that Larry and John are setting a new record for stubbornness, and they are doing it at the expense of the organization and its fans. I don't know what Theo's conditions were before he made the ultimate choice to leave, but I am sure they weren't unreasonable and hey - where the hell are John Henry's balls, huh? Would Steinbrenner sit back and let everything collapse like this? No. No, he would not. And I'm not saying that I prefer the Steinbrenner way of doing things, but come on, Henry! These are not times to be dreamy and contemplative! Go out there and get your GM back! POST-FREAKING-HASTE.
Ok, I know I said that I was going to move on and all. And I would totally do it if I thought that each of the two recently separated parties were coasting through to brighter horizons. They aren't, and it's foolish. Enough already. It isn't too late.
