Ripping Theo Epstein

USA Today's Ian O'Connor has one of the most hateful, insulting columns I've read on the Theo Epstein situation.

O'Connor calls Epstein, dishonest, a baby, a quitter, someone who couldn't hack it in Boston and who took his pacifier and went home when the going got tough.

Oh, and he piles on with some of the boilerplate insults, referring to "an overflow chorus of computer geeks who served as blind apostles of Epstein's faith."

I'm at a loss as to what caused this level of hostility from O'Connor...
