[QUOTE]In Response to Re: The real story of Theo Epstien : OK Budzo, if you think Theo is such a bad GM, then I have a proposition for you.
If Theo is the Cubs' GM, then I predict they will make a playoff appearance within three years. If he is as incompetent as you suggest, then this is not likely to happen in spite of their budget. If this doesn't happen, then you must add a tagline to the bottom of every post for the remainder of your time here. The line will read, "I was wrong about Theo and you should completely ignore me regarding baseball matters." I will do the same should this prediction not come true. Now put up or shut up!

It's quite obvious Crazy4Sox
is easily exposed.
1) Did he take you up on your proposition? No
. He completely ignored it. If the Cubs "don't know what they are doing", then hiring Epstein follows suit, right?
The cubs are high-prices also-rans, so why would Epstein make a difference?
If Crazy4Sox really believed his own BS, he would jump at this proposition.
2) Theo had nothing to do with the 03 team that came close and got credit for the same players in 04 by simply making the Nomar trade that everyone labeled him a genius for after winning the WS
exposed him: Wrong.
Millar, Ortiz, Mueller, Schilling, Walker, Bellhorn, Timlin. Embree, Foulke were all Epstein's early moves. In two seasons the team went from being very incomplete with a few star players to the deepest offense in the majors. He built a thin bit efficient BP in two seasons.
3) Crazy4Sox came onto this board with the statement THEO IS A LIAR.
He later said Theo wanted Hanley out of town and claimed Theo backed the Beckett deal, which was a lie.
I called him out on it and he went off the deep end.
4) Roy further exposes him with several posts.
It's pretty clear as to who stays and who runs when it comes time to put up or shut up.
Crazy4Sox has done nothing but fabricate and start controversial threads to get a rise out of people since he joined this board.
He claims to work for NESN.
He accused Moon
of erasing posts on his thread.
He's made several allusions to the fact that those who don't live in the Boston area don't really know what's going on.
Ask him where he
If he really believed his own garbage, he would take you up on your board wager.
He is and always has been full of sh*t.
