Boston RedSox and Theo Epstein Split!

Bad news for RedSox fans...

Theo Epstein decided to end his stay as Boston Red Sox general manager hours before his contract was set to expire at midnight Monday, the Boston Herald reported on its Web site.

Epstein, 31, has been the subject of rumors for weeks, and had reportedly turned down a three-year deal worth $1.2 million annually, triple his previous salary.

The youngest general manager to build a World Series-winner, he was reported to be seeking something closer to the $2.5 million a year the Red Sox offered Oakland Athletics GM Billy Beane before Epstein was hired.

Epstein became the youngest general manager in baseball history when the Red Sox hired him five weeks shy of his 29th birthday in 2002. He signed a three-year contract that paid him about $350,000 a year.

During Epstein's tenure, the Red Sox reached the postseason in three straight years for the first time, and in 2004 they won their first World Series title since 1918. In 2003, they lost in the seventh game of the AL Championship Series to the New York Yankees. This year, they were swept by the Chicago White Sox in three games in the AL division series.

By the way **** Larry Lucchino. I am seriously sick and tired of him. Hopefully Henry will shut him the **** up and buy him out.

I was very surprised when I heard this on the radio at work today. Definitely did not expect that to happen. I bet you George wishes Cashman quit on him (JK JK relax Yankee fans). Anyway talk about a stud free-agent lol. I wonder who's going to go after him.
