Who the hell is Ben Cherington?

Who is Ben Cherington ? : The new General Manager of the Boston Red Sox

Cherington is from New Hampshire – Good

He went to Amherst College and UMass – Good

He was Co-General Manager with Jed Hoyer when Theo Epstein disappeared. They made the trade for Beckett and Lowell – Good

Ben was hired in 1997 by Dan Duquette – Ehh

He was married to Wendi Nix of ESPN – Good, she’s no Erin Andrews or Jen Brown, but she’s not bad

He and Wendi Nix are now divorced – Bad for him, good for the team

So what does this all mean? Ben Cherington seems like a good local guy, which we like. As for him, his life is about to be a mix of good and really bad because he has to deal with a shit storm at Fenway and he is about to be an open book as the Boston media is not exactly the easiest going. Good luck pal.
