Theo won't have seat at Fenway, but he deserves assist for title run

BOSTON -- Former Red Sox general manager Dan Duquette attended three of the four 2004 World Series games, as he felt a strong bond with the historic team he helped build even though he'd been gone two-plus years. The attendance of Duquette, now the GM of the rival Orioles following a long wait to get back into the game, perplexed some Red Sox execs at the time. But Cubs president Theo Epstein, similarly gone for two years, surely gets it now.

Epstein is too busy trying to write a similar story with the Chicago Cubs, who haven't won a World Series championship since 1908 (and also busy trying to hire a new manager), to even think about making it back to Fenway for what could be a crowning achievement by these Red Sox, a third World Series ring within a decade. But at least he is starting to understand how Duquette felt to watch Pedro Martinez, Manny Ramirez, Derek Lowe, Jason Varitek and many of the guys he acquired help beat the Cardinals nine years ago to break an 85-year title-less streak.

Not only is Epstein not here, but he won't even talk about his own contributions to this team, as he wouldn't dare detract from the accomplishment of current GM Ben Cherington, his longtime former assistant GM and close friend. He doesn't need to, though. It's obvious.
