Defending Theo Epstein

Cooperstown graybeard Two-Fingers Brown, who has all ten digits but drinks his coffee with two fingers of spirits of anemone, and who coached for the Braves in Boston, Milwaukee or Atlanta, but can't remember which, stopped by for his usual morning constitutional at Bob's Guns, Boats & Liquor at the end of the Lake Street pier and defended newly renamed Boston Red Sox GM Theo Epstein. Epstein is very easy to get along with, said Brown, once you learn to worship him.
