    That’s a Fine Kettle of Fish…

    I know its all business, and Jed Hoyer and Theo had every right to choose whomever they wish for their vacant managerial position, but their offer to Red Sox front runner Dale Sveum just seems a bit like a “screw you” move to Management… So now the Sox # 1 Pick–and the only one who […]
