First Paul DePodesta gets fired by the Dodgers, and now this:
"The Boston Red Sox and Theo Epstein today announced that the senior vice president/general manager has declined the club's offer to extend his contract for future years and thus will step down from his post," the club said in a statement. "Epstein will continue, however, to work with the organization for several days to assist in an orderly transition and to prepare further for the upcoming GM meetings and other off-season activities."
A shocking turn of events, to say the least. Epstein was all set to sign a new contract, but apparently walked away because of issues within the organization.
