    He should be there because in some key respects he is still the Sox GM.  His acquisitions of Lackey and Crawford have limited Cherington to relatively small muscle movements.

    Epstien should definately have been invited to the celebration as he had a huge part in breaking the world series droubt (despite what ignorant critics will say) but it becomes a little difficult becuase he is the president of another organization and did shaft the sox for his own exchange.

    Did they invite his twin brother? Have him show up and just say its Theo...

    He will be back some day, probably few years down the line...

    He was the architect of 04WS and 07WS...

    RSF4life234,

    I give Theo credit for adding the few big pieces he was part of(Schilling, Ortiz, Foulke), but it is most certainly not ignorant to note that the 2004 team was largely built by his predecessor, and that he had nothing to do with the two primary factors in the 2007 championship(Beckett, Lowell).

    Make sure you know what you're talking about before making accusations of ignorance.

    Guys, this isn't "traitorous welps day"! This is a day to celebrate the splendor of Fenway Park....for fans. Theo doesn't deserve an invite, though I wouldn't put it past him to try to get one at the last minute. Theo is, and always was, all about Theo.

    The 2003 team was even more a product of his predecessor and they didn't win a WS.

    Most fans who celebrated the 2004 WS championship had a scorecard that didn't delineate which players were Duquettte's and which were Theo's. Most of them didn't really care. They just had a temperament and personality where that wanted to savor the moment.

    True.

    It was only when there was a larger body of Theo's work to be evaluated that his actual contribution came into focus.

    Reportedly, they did invite him to the game, to be a part of the 100th anniversary celebration but not take part in the ceremony. Epstein declined.

    [QUOTE]what "celebration"?....they're gonna trot out some ex-players and Saint Tito -- show some video with some bombastic over-the-top music accompanying it -- maybe unfurl a banner or two -- throw out a first pitch and that's it.  Who cares who got invited/not invited --this isn't some teenager's Sweet 16 party...Jesus H. Christ, get a grip.

    I've probably seen about 10 of your posts, and you've whined in every one of them.

    Epstein's best move in 2004 and not by choice or design was getting rid of Garciaparra at the trade deadline who refused to play.  The chain of events which followed were instrumental in the team achieving what it did.  He dodged a bullet before the season when Nomar arrogantly turned down a 4 year $60MM deal.  Had he and his agent accepted the more than generous offer, the Red Sox may well be looking forward to their initial championship.   

    The primary reason the Red Sox won their first WS in the modern era was because they were not the Boston Red, but rather a collection of players from outside the organization who were somehow able to accomplish the unthinkable.  Only one home grown Red Sox player appeared in the 2004 World Series and his name was Trot Nixon.  The others were an assortment of long and short term rentals some of whom were brought in by Dan Duquette and others of whom were brought in by Epstein. 

    Having the former GM at the event is irrelevant.  The players themselves and how they respond during the season and into October creates champions.  Field managers and their assistants provide structure and hopefully an environment in which they are nurtured and thrive.  General Managers write checks on behalf of their owner.  Those who get lucky with a combination of draft picks
    not applicable in 2004), trades and free agent signings can sometimes catch lightning in a bottle.  Such was the case with Epstein in his role.  Having him participate in the ceremony is totally unnecessary.
