Argument 41: Who Was The Most Important GM In Red Sox History?
Book Answer: Dick O'Connell
O'Connell was a good executive and he saved the Sox franchise and sent them to the pennant in 1967, but I have to pick Theo Epstein. Yes, I'm still angry at him for leaving the Red Sox when things got tough, but he was still our savior. Just look at that pose. He's basically saying, "I am your savior." Quite the young hotshot. I've said that he wasn't the complete reason for the Red Sox's 2004 World Series championship, but he did have all to do with the executive portion of 2007. So, yeah, there's that.
