Theo Epstein Bids Farwell To Boston

Cubs fans, count yourselves lucky. You have just received a brilliant, calculative, and above all professional executive:

Football legend Bill Walsh used to say that coaches and executives should seek change after 10 years with the same team. The theory is that both the individual and the organization benefit from a change after so much time together. The executive gets rebirth and the energy that comes with a new challenge; the organization gets a fresh perspective, and the chance for true change that comes with new leadership. This idea resonated with me. Although I tried my best to fight it, I couldn’t escape the conclusion that both the Red Sox and I would benefit from a change sometime soon.
If Boston Red Sox fans have anything less than appreciation for the man who just left their organization, then they deserve all the suffering that was September. Theo's farewell to Boston is both honest and intelligent — a good read for both Cubs and Red Sox fans.
