Theo Epstein is a married man.
The Red Sox general manager threw a shutout at the paparazzi, gossip columnists, nosy sportswriters, celebrity bloggers, and any other potential wedding crashers by sneaking off earlier this month to marry Marie Whitney, and also managed to keep their honeymoon a secret.
Epstein's father, Leslie, who heads the creative writing department at Boston University, confirmed last night that his son and Whitney were married.
"We're very happy for them, of course, but we can't say much more ..."
"I hope there's much happiness for them and for all Sox fans . . . this season."
