Theo Epstein Signs New Extension

The Boston Globe’s Dan Shaughnessey reports that Red Sox GM Theo Epstein signed a new deal to begin after the 2008 season. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it was important that the Sox and Theo got a deal done due to his expiring contract.

‘‘We are all on the same page with regard to our vision for the organization,” Henry wrote in an e-mail this afternoon to the Globe. “The negotiations were pleasant and were all about rewarding Theo for the great, great job he has done in bringing two world championships to the Red Sox. We look forward to the difficult task of trying to win a third.”

Theo signed his current deal after the 2005 season. He initially left the team for a few months, citing philiosophical differences with Sox CEO Larry Lucchino, but returned to sign his current deal.

Epstein was originally the youngest GM in baseball history at 28, taking over before the 2003 season. He has one two World Series titles (2004, 2007) and made the playoffs in four of his first five seasons (2003, 2004, 2005, 2007) and his Red Sox are on track to do the same this season.
