Theo Epstein left the Boston Red Sox about two years ago, but he didn’t leave Boston for good. During the MLB offseason, he and his family would retreat to their Chestnut Hill, Mass., home and take in the sights of the city Epstein once helped bring the Commissioner’s Trophy to.
Now, it seems as if Epstein is ready to sever all ties. The Chicago Cubs president of baseball operations bought the house for $2.35 million six years ago and is now selling it for $3.65 million.
The home is located in Brookline, Mass., a suburb of Boston. Although it looks like a modest home with a white picket fence and freshly trimmed grass, don’t be fooled. It is a multimillion-dollar mansion that comes with all the bells and whistles.
Six bedrooms, five baths and a two-car garage fit Epstein’s family of three comfortably. The master suite has a walk-in closet, fireplace and spa bath. Originally built in 1898, it has been updated to accommodate all sorts of entertainment, including a guest suite on the t...

The Red Sox front office is smart. They have a significant amount of resources, and they use them well. In the trade announced late Tuesday night, in which they sent Jose Iglesias to Detroit in a three-way deal for Jake Peavy, Boston used those resources well.
Within a very deep farm system, the Red Sox have a strength at shortstop. Jose Iglesias was producing well in...

The Boston Red Sox were robbed of scoring the tying run during Monday night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays due to a blown call at home plate. The blown call made all the difference in the game and could end up deciding who wins the American League East division at the end of the season.

Iowa Cubs 3 @ Oklahoma City RedHawks 4
Snore. Logan Watkins did well, going 2-4 with a double. Donnie Murphy tripled. Ty Wright singled and homered, and Darnell McDonald doubled, walked, and singled. That's it. Mike Olt was 0-4 with another strikeout.
Brooks Raley was very serviceable, allowing 2 runs in 6.2 innings. He walked 3 and struck out 2. Flamethrower Henry Rodriguez...
Unassisted double plays are nothing new in baseball, but they don’t usually come courtesy of the left fielder. Jonny Gomes pulled off that rare feat Wednesday night — in the 15th inning, no less. With two men on and one out in a 4-4 game, Seattle’s Michael Saunders sent a sinking line drive into left field. Gomes robbed Saunders with a diving grab, however, before trotting...
(AP Photo/Elise Amendola)They are 25 EverReady Bunnies these 2013 Carmine Hose. Somehow finding the energy to keep at it for 15 innings, the Red Sox pulled out a 5-4 win to vault themselves back into first place in the AL East. Stephen Drew hit a bases-loaded single to right to end the marathon contest—the team's major league-leading 10th walk-off win this season. John Lackey...
The 2008 season was Gary Sheffield‘s second-to-last in Major League Baseball, and it wasn’t one of his finest. Sheffield was 39 during the campaign, and struggled to a .725 OPS in just 114 games for the Detroit Tigers.
But that isn’t stopping Sheffield from disparaging that year’s MVP — Dustin Pedroia.
“Those numbers [Pedroia put up] we put up in the first half [of the...
The Cubs have determined they aren't going to get the blockbuster package they sought for Jeff Samardzija right now so they will try again to lock him up or trade him in the winter.
If a third attempt to sign him to a big extension fails in the offseason a trade will become much more likely.
The Cubs were looking for a package of frontline prospects for Samarardzija and only...
Bucky Dent's home run in 1978 gave the Yankees a playoffvictory over the Red Sox.
Shades of 1978. Only slightly different.
Yes, Red Sox Nation. We all remember that home run by Bucky “Bleepin’” Dent. As comedian Ron White would say, “Things that make you go, buhhhhh.”
Well, the Dent family was at it again, this time against a different...
Well, that didn’t take long.
Earlier Tuesday, word came out that the Philadelphia Phillies were demanding top Red Sox prospect Xander Bogaerts in any trade for ace Cliff Lee. About an hour passed before another report emerged indicating that the Red Sox don’t think the 34-year-old left-hander is in the cards — we can only speculate because they believe the price for Lee is...
Edwin Jackson pitched eight solid innings, David DeJesus drove in three runs and the Chicago Cubs beat the Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 on Wednesday night to salvage the finale of the four-game series.
Anthony Rizzo hit a two-run homer and Starlin Castro belted a solo shot as Chicago closed out a 14-13 July, its first winning calendar month since it went 15-10 last July. Jackson allowed...

Sox complete 15th inning win
Boston used a total team effort to come from behind and beat the Seattle Mariners Wednesday night. They got a strong performance from starter John Lackey, they got some timely hits, and played strong defense to earn their second win in a row at Fenway Park. Even though the middle of the order didn't get it...
Jose Iglesias, traded to the Tigers Tuesday, tweeted out his farewell to Fenway today.
A big thank you to the @RedSox organization and all of #RedSoxNation for all the love and support these first years of my career. Los amo!

The Red Sox will host Iglesias and the Tigers for a three-game series beginning...
Sitrick had a nice tweet about how Starlin Castro (I first typed Stalin Castro and really thought about keeping it) leads the team among qualified Cubes in batting average. I wanted to see how that stacked up this year, and found that Castro is 29th among team-leaders. Adeiny Hechavarria is 30th and the only Marlin with enough PA to qualify.
First Pitch: Tuesday 7:10, Wednesday 7:10, Thursday 7:10
Arms: Tuesday: Joe Saunders, LHP (9-9, 4.48 ERA) vs. Brandon Workman, RHP (0-1, 4.40 ERA)
Wednesday: Hisashi Iwakuma, RHP (10-4, 2.87 ERA) vs. John Lackey, RHP (7-8, 3.19 ERA)
Thursday: Felix Hernandez, RHP (11-4, 2.34 ERA) vs. Ryan Dempster, RHP (6-8, 4.24 ERA)
You won’t find many throwaway games on the Red Sox’ second-half schedule.
The team will play 19 of its final 21 games against division opponents, including three against Tampa Bay, six against Baltimore and seven against the Yankees.
The aging Bronx Bombers may not have the horses to make a serious run at the American League East crown, but the power-hitting Orioles and pitching...
