At least one GM thinks Theo Epstein could've made the Royals a winner.â†µ
ESPN's Buster Olney polled a dozen GMs with a variety of questions. One of the questions was, of all the MLB GMs, who would you hire?â†µ
Eight of the 12 answered Epstein. Here's what one said:â†µ
"Theo's career has been helped by being in Boston, but I think that if you had put him in Kansas City five years ago, they'd be pretty good right now. If you were an owner, it would be hard to find someone better."â†µ
Ugh. I'd rather not think about it.
