"You have to believe in the people you work with... There were some breakdowns in the end, and that was unfortunate."
-- 11.2.05, Theo Epstein, Former Red Sox GM

"Maybe I’m not fit to be the principal owner of the Boston Red Sox"
-- 11.2.05, John Henry, Red Sox owner... for now

Q: Theo, do you believe that in any way that the confidentiality of certain issues concerning whether it was baseball decisions or a player’s desire to keep something private was breached by upper management either in the papers or on the talk shows?

You know, whenever you have a negotiation, an internal negotiation, management negotiating with one of its employees, there’s the possibility for it to get contentious. There’s the possibility for it to become public. And we took steps throughout the process to protect against that, and it worked for a long time. There were some breakdowns in the end, and that was unfortunate.

Q: (John) Do you believe there’s a trust issue?

A trust issue? Between Theo and us? Between Theo and Larry? Again, I… you know… if there are reasons that Theo had… if there was a trust issue from Theo’s perspective, he should be the one to tell you that. I don’t believe, as I said before, that there was one issue. Was that an issue? I don’t believe that was an issue.
