"After all, it was Henry who said in November that Epstein would not be returning to the Red Sox, and then indicated last Saturday that Theo was not part of the organization, which must have been a big surprise to those who had actually talked to Epstein on the phone since the New Year while under the impression that he spoke for the Red Sox.

"What we do know is that this entire episode has been much less complicated than portrayed. Forget all the heart-wrenching stories about needing life outside of baseball and the love of privacy, and ignore all the posturing that has come out of many corners of Fenway Park (Many within the Red Sox hierarchy are Democrats -- and for the purpose of full disclosure, I lean left myself -- and they are in no position to complain about the White House spin machine now, considering how much whirling they've done since Oct. 31).
