As the days pass, it seems more and more likely that Theo Epstein will not return as the Boston Red Sox general manager.
Friday on WEEI in Boston, Red Sox ownership talked about how Epstein will not be the GM forever and how there's "a certain shelf life in these jobs."
Not exactly a ringing endorsement that they will tell the Cubs no and bring Epstein back for the 2012 season as their GM.
If Epstein goes, the Red Sox will ultimately have to find a new GM, which could come from in-house or somewhere else. There are plenty of qualified candidates out there.
