The new Bambino

In a city that is passionate about its professional sports teams, no club is more adored than the Boston Red Sox. For the first time in over 80 years, the Red Sox have a chance to win the World Series, and today's win to tie the first round playoff series 2-2 has sent the city into a celebratory whirlwind.

As exciting as the story of the Red Sox on the field is, the more interesting story is of the man behind the scenes in the front office. Theo Epstein, the General Manager of the Red Sox, has made key personnel decisions to make the Red Sox a contender, including bringing in Kevin Millar, David Ortiz, and Byung-Hyun Kim among others. More impressive though, is the fact that he is only 28 years old - the youngest general manager in Major League Baseball history. Epstein who grew up a Red Sox fan in nearby Brookline has quieted his doubters and has given the Red Sox a legitimate chance at something they haven't done since 1918.
