Theology pieces together clues to one of baseball’s great unsolved mysteries: Boston Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein.

In 2005, at the age of 32, and just a year after leading the Red Sox to their first World Series title in 86 years, Epstein walked away from the position he had coveted his entire life. The decision stunned Red Sox Nation and surprised fans, players, coaches, and other GMs across the country. Author John Frascella reveals the conflict behind Epstein’s sudden resignation as well as the circumstances leading to his return in 2006. He also explores Epstein’s rapid rise to the top, his managerial skills (which some question despite his obvious success), and his cutting-edge methods for evaluating players and running a professional baseball franchise. Theology gives Red Sox fans a unique perspective from which to relive their recent and current World Series victories while offering all baseball lovers an insightful account into one of the game’s most fascinating figures.
