Theo Epstein Makes Bad Starting Pitching Choices?
Posted 04 October 2011 - 11:52 AM
MLBTradeRumors went through Boston's rotation during the Epstein years with some interesting results (h/t to Toosh).
In only three of his seasons (out of eight) did the Red Sox have an "above average" rotation. Given the Sox's spending habits, that's not very good.
It still doesn't scare me enough to not want Theo, but it's interesting. Thoughts?

I know most of us see the two WS rings and say YES THEO IS MY MAN, but it's a smart move for Ricketts to look for red flags just because he won two WS.

I thought that the Lackey signing was solid except for the number of years. Pitching overall is a crap shoot, it should always be buyer beware. We could probably go through almost every team and come up with 3-5 guys that were overpaid for thier time and didn't pan out.
