Theo Epstein has taken some deserved shots for a handful of his personnel decisions over the past season or two. In particular, Yankees fans were thrilled that the Boston organization passed on re-upping Johnny Damon for more than the $52M offered by the Boss. There was similar crowing about letting Pedro walk last year, but how’s that decision looking now? Not that Pedro can’t come back and be effective (we really hope he does, he’s one of our absolute all-time favorites), but as long as Theo et al are fair game for snarky premature criticism, it would be nice to see some of those who have taken the opportunity recently to pile on the Sox’ front office acknowledging that Theo and the Sox might not be completely clueless when it comes to the long-term. We won’t hold our breaths.
