• Theo? I Wanted Miss Cleo!

    Posted by on July 28th, 2006 · Comments (1)

    I saw this in an article about the Red Sox adding IP telephony to their organization:

    Last season, Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein’s cell phone was posted on a New York Yankees fan Web site, resulting in so many calls to his phone that Conley had to quickly get Verizon Wireless to change Epstein’s number.

    Awesome. I missed this story last year. Does anyone know what site posted the number?

      Jeez, I can’t believe I missed the boat on such a great prank call opportunity:

      “Hi, Theo, it’s Shonda [Schilling]. Curt wanted me to tell you that he hates your guts and wants out. And he’ll only approve a trade to the [name of team with worst minor league prospects].”
      “Is this really Shonda?”
      “No, ya jackass. Boston Sucks!”
