Kip, Kip ... Hooray? No Way

Survey: Should the Sox Have Made a Deal? | Discuss

"We came close on a lot of things � countless opportunities we were pursuing �We have a long term plan and as much as we desperately wanted to do something to help our big league team, it would have been short-sighted to sacrifice that long-term plan. It just wasn�t worth it.

"Very disappointing [not being able to make a deal]. We have a lot of people in the front office and scouts that worked very hard to get things done.

"In the end, we gathered around everybody, thanked them for their hard work. We�re proud of the process, and proud of the results� There�s always an opportunity for waiver deals." -- 7.31.06, Theo Epstein on the trade deadline

Kip, Kip Hooray? ...
