So who’s to blame for this Red Sox [team stats] collapse? Is it general manager Theo Epstein? Or is it manager Terry Francona?
In the aftermath of an on-air comment by veteran baseball writer Peter Gammons about how there is a so-called “disconnect” between Epstein and Francona, everybody has an opinion. One camp wants to blame Epstein for making lousy free agent signings, another camp wants to blame Francona for being too soft on his players.
Is it possible to support both the GM and the manager?
