Today, Nick Cafardo had a very interesting piece with the former Red Sox front office insider, Bill Lajoie, who was originally thought to play the role of grizzled old scout and the opposite of Bill James. Lajoie states to Cafardo that But when Epstein returned, Lajoie made his recommendations and retired again in January, he said, because "I didn't want to get caught in a struggle between Theo and Larry." It appears that Lajoie does not feel that the two executives can work together. John Herny might have to play the role of both mediator and boss prolonged and repeatedly.

But the most damning quote has to be "…and to be honest I wanted to go someplace where they would listen and value my opinion." So are the Sox not valuing the scouting perspective as much anymore or just Lajoie? Hopefully, both sides are on equal footing on Yawkey Way. If not, the Sox will be loosing a competitive advantage.
