Toronto, September 19 (YFSF Wire) – Boston Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein was involved in a fight last night at a local Toronto watering hole, our sources have learned. Epstein, who led the Red Sox to their first World Series championship in 86 years in 2004, has been lauded as one of the wunderkinds of baseball management. But last night, his ability to move quickly and smartly was not in view, as he was cold-cocked while sipping a beer at approximately 9:47pm. Epstein, who spoke with police following the incident, offered a brief comment to the press, saying "I never saw it coming. He looked tough but fully composed, and normally those are the types of guys I hang with, not who take me out. I wasn’t raised to expect the sucker punch". Patrons of the nightclub, who asked for anonymity in return for their comments, said that Epstein "made the right move, he didn’t have any way of anticipating that some goateed lumberjack would take him down out of nowhere".
There has been no word on whether Epstein will press charges.
