The deal, all of the Chicago Cubs players in return for all of the Boston Red Sox players, was not accepted by new Red Sox general manager Ben Cherington.
"I don't want to panic anyone, but with this trade not happening, we're going to suck for a long time, if not forever," said Epstein. "My expertise is more in the area of running really talented teams. Without those Red Sox players, I'm kind of out of my element. My rebuilding effort was based on getting Jacoby Ellsbury, Adrian Gonzalez and all of their pitchers except John Lackey."
The Jaguars have fans AND great fan signs? Amazing. I am amazed.

"Should our players, who are multimillionaire athletes, be drinking during games something that isn't even allowed in the majority of slow-pitch, rec league softball leagues around the country?" said Torre. "Who can say? It's a tough decision."
The issue has gained attention in recent weeks with reports that several Boston Red Sox players drank during games this season. But Torre and other baseball officials fear that cracking down on in-game beer and spirits could hurt the growth of the sport.
"If we declare that our players can't drink during games, our sport will suddenly become less alluring to out-of-shape guys who like to get hammered," said Selig. "They'll quit baseball and play sports like fishing, bowling, golf or auto racing."
His greatest talents are not with a rake. Good for him.
