'Time to Move On'

AP Theo in Chicago

Theo Takes Center Stage in the Second City

Theo Introduced

"I had a great 10 years with the Red Sox. We had a lot of fun, a lot of success. We won two World Series. We got to see the baseball operations department grow. We got to see the business side grow. We got to see the ballpark improve. We got to see how the city responded. I got to make friends that will last a lifetime. I got to share it all with my family. I would never trade that experience for everything (sic), but I do believe, Bill Walsh of the 49'ers said it best. After about 10 years in sports, there comes a time when you have to consider change for the benefit, not only of the individual involved, but also for the benefit of the organization. I wouldn't trade my time with the Red Sox, but I do think it was time to move on. They're in great hands and they have a terrific future laid out in front of them. I was ready for the next big challenge and this is certainly the ultimate challenge. I'm ready to embrace it and move forward." -- Theo Epstein, Emperor of time, space, and dimension in Chicago
