... in Boston

Theo Epstein joined his twin brother Paul and Joan Wallace-Benjamin, CEO of The Home for Little Wanderers, who all react to Nicholas Davis, of Brockton, Mass., while he holds a baseball given to him from Theo during a press conference to kick off a gift drive for The Home for Little Wanderers in Boston today.

"I'm doing really well," said Epstein. "I don't know if it surprises you or not, there's more to life than baseball, I'm sure I will work in baseball again soon, but everything is going really well. My departure from the Red Sox will do a lot of good for me as a growth opportunity to see the rest of the world, but also for the Red Sox in the long run, sometimes it takes a bit of a shock to the system to improve organizations or institutions and they've done a great job this last month of examinating those things. It's a great organization, it always was but we're all imperfect and there are always ways to improve."

Who knows? Maybe he'll return as the surprise GM in Dallas next week since the job is still open. ESPN's Buster Olney writes in his blog (on 12.2.05) "Still think there's a chance Theo Epstein returns to the organization; he continues to be involved in conversation with ownership."
