Multiple sources are now reporting that former Angels GM Jerry DiPoto has been hired on an "interim" basis by the Red Sox. Presumably, DiPoto—an "analytics" guy—will serve in the "President/CEO" capacity to be vacated by Larry Lucchino. The story from Yawkey Way is that DiPoto will "help" with off-season moves. Dipoto "resigned" from the Angels job after reportedly feuding with Halo manager Mike Scioscia. For those who don't remember, DiPoto was a Red Sox scout in 2003-4 and was thus part of the management team that broke "The Curse". Stay tuned for the possible dropping of other shoes!
