Boston Herald: Theo walks

Boston Herald story

I like the part where the Herald gets to get in shots at the Globe:

A leading contributing factor, according to sources close to the situation, was a column in Sunday's Boston Globe in which too much inside information about the relationship between Epstein and his mentor, team president and CEO Larry Lucchino, was revealed -- in a manner slanted too much in Lucchino's favor. Epstein, according to these sources, had several reasons to believe Lucchino was a primary source behind the column and came to the realization that if this information were leaked hours before Epstein was going to agree to a new long-term deal, it signaled excessive bad faith between him and Lucchino.

This is a big story, because it puts Epstein out there and changes the Red Sox's future, which was already a bit up in the air.
