Is that Jake Gyllenhaal or Theodore Nathan Epstein?
Epstein was a huge celebrity in Boston. I mean, becoming the Red Sox GM at the age of 28, bringing the team its first championship in 86 years and winning a second title shortly thereafter, how could this guy not be revered in Boston lore?
However, when you receive so much success at such a young age, it is tough to continue to have any form of humility and tough to believe you are not the saviour of Boston—let alone having the same drive to win.
In this regard, I believe he became too big and let his ego get in the way of decisions and the like, hence making this departure a boon for the Sox.
Many believe the Epstein smearing will only get worse.
