Welcome Aboard, Ben Cherington!

Well, not exactly aboard, you know- since he's been in the organization for 12 years... but you know what I mean! Today, the Red Sox formally announced Ben Cherington as their new general manager and the Cubs introduced Theo Epstein as theirs. Regarding the Red Sox historic September collapse, Cherington stated that there were be changes. He also said that while Epstein was more of a front office kind of guy, he was more of a drafting/player development GM. This strategy could work out well for the Sox, a team whose farm system has been wiped clean multiple times in the past few years. I hope you bring us some championships, Ben, and congrats on the promotion!
