    Theo Supporters urge Theo to go to Chicago...

    I do anyhow.  Why not?

    Imagine a GM turn Team President taking two of the most legendary baseball teams from long term droughts to a WSC and both within ten years. If this were to happen, even if it took a little longer, who would bet against Theo being voted to the HOF? Exec's don't get in too often and if this didn't qualify then what would.

    The Cubs have a terrific stadium, and a budding star in Starlin Castro. The majority of their noose contracts expire by 2014, he will have a chance to make his mark early. The ownership has money. 

    From a Sox perspective we know about the Luchino/Theo relationship, the Sox have won two titles already under Theo, and it could simply be a been-there- done-that moment; especially when he could take ALL the credit in Chicago. I think this organization can be fine without Theo and not because I think he isn't any good, as he has proven his worth twice already.

    I say go for it. You do not need to be a basher to urge our GM to go for it.

    I'd love for the Cubs to get this big budget moron, who did not construct key parts of both titles. Yankees prove that spending massive amounts will work for titles and regular playoff spots.

    It could be a very good move for Theo. The Red Sox ownership may be able to compensate for the loss of Epstein, but look what happened when the Sox let Ed Barrow get away to the Yanks. My sincere hope is that Theo loves Brookline too much to want to brave the winds of Lake Michigan, or failing that, that Mr. Henry sweetens his deal enough to keep him at home. Cherington might make a decent GM, but given my druthers I'd ruther not find out.

    carnie pop a look at the Chicago salaries... every single one of their albatross contracts end before 2014 except Soriano who would be in his final year. You could have a lot of fun with that as a GM/President.

    You definitely could. Which is one reason I think The Windy City could look attractive to Theo. Not only that but Theo could end a longer championship drought than he did in Boston. It would cement his case for the hall of fame and he certainly has to give it some thought. I'm just hoping John Henry is a student of baseball history and looks at the case of Ed Barrow before making any decision on what to offer Mr. Epstein in response to any Chicago offer.

    It's not about the size of the budget, it's about how the given budget is spent that determines gm job performance. Would love to see overrated Theo become Cubs liability. Luchino is the true management value in Boston. As long as Henry and Luchino are running it, all will be well.

    when you use the phrase "idiots who talk about the same ol' same ol',"
    would you be referring to those posters who think theo is a god?

    No. I get tired of the people that attack the alleged bashers, because 90% of their posts are about attacking those types... here is a thread that should be great and worthwhile but the so-called "positive" people are too busy participating in the negative threads.

    I don't mind your presence on the board, just as I hope people do not mind mine... but unless I start a controversial thread or make a negative remark people are not interested....

    actually burrito, you're a breath of fresh air on this board. i like your controversial posts. i like controversy period.
    i'm a red sox fan for only one reason. it has nothing to do with new england, massachusettes, nor the city of boston. i'm from upstate NY, which is mainly YANKEE country.
    oh yeah, the one reason i'm a SOX fan is TED WILLIAMS. if williams had played for the yankees, i would have been a yankee fan.

    it's funny really that if you don't like everything about the SOX, then you're a troll.
    i like most things about the SOX: john henry, larry lucchino, and 95% of the players.
    the ones i don't like, i don't mind centering in on them. if the people on this board don't like it, who cares; i don't follow the SOX because of them.
     
    a lot of these posters are like oatmeal; their main motivation on this board is to be liked. how boring is that?

    also, like oatmeal, our main motivation is to not post the same redundant tripe in every single post.

    you're so 'oatmeal' spaceman, that i almost believe you're a quaker.

    also, when someone believes a highly paid professional is not doing his job properly, it should be made public as much as possible. especially, when no one else is reporting it.
    hey spaceman, you should try being controversial once; don't worry, you won't
     lose too many friends.
    i'll still like ya.

    well, at least he was kind enough to change his avatar and not embarrass harvey keitel and robert deniro any longer.

    strike that; davis is back to the old avatar again. the shame of it.
