Never thought I'd see a general manager elevated to rock star status.
Or "President of Baseball Operations" or whatever Theo Epstein's new title is with the Chicago Cubs.
Either way, oh MAN!
I could not be more excited, more happy, more re-energized about our favorite team than right now.
Well, a World Series title would be nice.
No pressure there, Theo.
Seriously, if he does what he intends to do - change culture, build from the ground up, all that... I will happily watch for summers to come.
Come on, man - we've been waiting our whole lives.
It's not like we're suddenly turning into Met fans if we don't win the series in 2013.
Meanwhile, how nice would it be for the Texas Rangers to take the 2011 World Series in St. Louis tonight?!
Never has Tony LaRussa been so personally on the ropes.
You gotta watch.
