Red Sox general managers through the years
On Halloween 2005 Epstein resigned from the team and reportedly left Fenway Park in a gorilla suit to avoid reporters. Three months later he returned to the team as general manager with the additional title of executive vice president.
Epstein's questionable acquisitions included: Edgar Renteria, J.D. Drew, Julio Lugo, Daisuke Matsuzaka (pictured here), and John Lackey.
