Theo speaks on the “Brush Fires”

Theo Epstein (TE) was on WEEI with Mike Adams(MA) and Michael Felger (MF) this morning and had some interesting comments.

First, he was asked by Mike Adams about the lineup last night, and how it seemed curious to have so many impact players out of the lineup.

TE: Who do you think can make out a better lineup, Terry Francona, with all the information, managing to win as many games as possible over the course of 162 games, or you, with partial information to win last night

Belichick will not be so lucky. He doesn’t have (Jimmy) Johnson’s personality, which can be as jovial and charming as a snake oil salesman’s. Worse, this Patriot team isn’t going to win two Super Bowls any time soon…
