Finding Theo: Rockets Go a Different Direction

Les Alexander is finally shelving GM Carroll Dawson. It's been a long, strange trip for The Man... Men. Alexander is apparently hoping what worked for the Red Sox with Theo Epstein will work for the Rockets--inasmuch as he's found some young dude in Boston to take over, Daryl Morey.

Morey has no real sports background to go with his new digs, but he's a geeky stat guy... so, is he winning his fantasy basketball league? What about his NBA 2K6 Franchise? What does his NCAA bracket look like? These are things we should ask and things that should help. He did go to MIT... so my mom will like him.

We'll miss CD somewhat... I guess... we'll miss how much he looks like a televangelist. In that way, he was kind of perfect for Schizopolis.

Houston's Clear Thinker is happy to hear about the change, though they aren't any less ashamed of the Rockets.

The Houston Chronicle's Richard Justice knows Billy Beane, has studied Billy Beane, and says to Morey, "you sir, are no Billy Beane." Always hit the moneyball.
