'I Know Nothing! NOTHING!'
The Leaks Stop Here.
Sergeant Schultz Named Special Boston Media Liaison.
Will No News Be Good News for Sox Fans?
"Let there be no doubt, by the way, that part of the new Sox compact is a determination to manage the news as much as possible.
"'I think the Patriots have had a lot of success in this market, the way they run things,' Epstein said. 'I'm not saying we're adopting all of their practices, but it's hard to quibble with their approach.'
"In that spirit, no one was saying anything about Epstein's deal, including, laughably, length of term. We're allowed to know that Lucchino signed a contract extension through 2011, but not whether Epstein is signed through next week? Next thing you know, the Sox will be describing Curt Schilling's ankle problems as a 'lower leg' injury. And the same fans who have joined Henry in condemning the media for 'leaks' will be the ones bemoaning the dearth of information about prospective trades and free agent signings." -- 1.26.05, Gordon Edes, Boston Globe
