|Epstein confirms contract||11.03.08 at 7:14 pm ET|
DANA POINT, Calif. — Speaking at the General Manager’s Meetings at the St. Regis Monarch Beach Resort, Red Sox GM Theo Epstein confirmed he has signed a new deal with the Sox to continue in his current position, although he wouldn’t disclose terms or years.
“That’s done. It was taken care of a while back,” he said. “Hopefully, (the duration is) long enough but not too long.”
Epstein, who has now spent six seasons as the Red Sox G.M. and has overseen two World Series winners and five playoff squads, praised the organization in clarifying his reasons for re-upping with the club.
“When you sit back and think about one day being a general manager, this is exactly the sort of organization you’d want to work for,” said Epstein. “We have great fans, great ownership resources and, just as important, a tremendous foundation carved by our scouting and player development departments which, if we don’t screw it up, should lead to some long-term success. That’s why we’re all in this game: to work with good people and to try to win the World Series as many times as you can.”
