Bye Bye BK

The near-perfect Theo Epstein has made one notable mistake in his 3 year stay as the Red Sox GM. Today he corrected that mistake by unloading Byung Hyun Kim to the Colorado Rockies. While on paper the deal looks like a cash dump for the Sox, it actually results in more than $300,000 in MLB luxury tax savings.

Epstein has clearly shown he can make the tough calls to help the Sox. Last year’s Nomar deal would have been unthinkable by previous GMs and this move shows that he’s not too shy to admit when he’s wrong.

    Hi, I’m actually looking for the email address of one of your bloggers… Stephanie Appell. Anyone know her email?
