Theo Epstein's Press Conference

Not surprisingly, the press conference has resolved nothing. Mayor Menino was wrong and theo did not come out and say he was staying after all. Theo said he wasn't leaving because of Larry, he wasn't leaving because of the Shaugnessy article, he wasn't leaving because of this or that. He's not burnt out. There was no one thing. In other words, he didn't tell anyone anything.

The only thing resolved was John Henry took responsibility for Theo leaving. He said the articles about Larry were completely unfair and inaccurate. But he wouldn't say what else he could have done and he actually sounded like he was in pain talking about Theo leaving.

BTW, John Henry told Larry Luchinno he shouldn't come to the press conference.

If you want to see a summary of Theo and Larry's comments, you should head over to the Extra Bases at the Boston Globe.
