THEO EPSTEIN RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cubs Rumors: Chicago can add payroll in coming years

The Chicago Cubs have already called up a couple of their future pieces in Javier Baez and Jorge Soler. On the way, they have Kris Bryant, Albert Almora, Addison Russell, and more intriguing young talent that is not far from reaching the majors. However, their surplus of position players does not make up for the lack of major league and minor league talent.#168231267 / gettyimages...

How Far Have the Cubs Come?

So far, Soler . . . so good. It has been almost three years, nearly three hundred losses, and three drafts since the Cubs hired Theo Epstein to save the Cubs from their sins and rescue them from eternal damnation in their permanent subterranean dwelling in the Central Division’s fiery core. And if you think that metaphor is overblown in ridiculous, it was meant to match the expectations...

When Could the Cubs Compete?

When Theo Epstein came to Chicago in 2011, many realized that the rebuilding plan would consume the 2012, 2013, and likely 2014 campaigns. However many thought 2015 would be the yer the Cubs could start competing, and as we draw nearer to 2015, perhaps we should examine that assertion. Indeed, 2014 has been lost in the name of progress, but with each passing day, the organization...

Were We All Duped by Team Theo?

I have seen several fans talking about the Chicago Cubs lately wondering if Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and Tom Ricketts pulled the wool over our eyes. Many fans have been complaining that they bought into “The Plan” and now have egg on their faces. Others have been talking about running out of patience with “Team Theo” as nothing has been accomplished lately and that they are...

Epstein not thrilled with Cards 'gift' draft pick

The St. Louis Cardinals were unlikely winners Wednesday when they secured a bonus draft pick in Major League Baseball's competitive-balance lottery. Theo Epstein, for one, couldn't deny feeling a tad bitter about the Cardinals' good fortune. "They do extremely well from a baseball standpoint and from a revenue standpoint," the Chicago Cubs' president of...

Theo Epstein very upset over rival Cardinals receiving extra draft pick

Theo Epstein is none too pleased about the Cardinals receiving an extra pick for the 2015 MLB Amateur Draft in Wednesday's Competitive Balance Lottery.Despite making the postseason 10 times since 2000, the Cardinals were among five other teams that received a bonus pick between the first and second rounds. This has Epstein throwing his proverbial hat and scratching his head as...

Theo Epstein: Boston Red Sox Still Contenders In ‘Wide Open’ AL East

Theo Epstein doesn’t think it’s time for the Boston Red Sox to become sellers. Epstein, the former general manager of the Red Sox now serving as the Chicago Cubs’ president of baseball operations, has faith in his former club to stay competitive this season despite a tumultuous first half. “(Selling pieces) would be a tough thing to do it any point, because the reality of...

Chicago Cubs shouldn’t fold on Sam Fuld

With parts of the team already set in place and Theo Epstein waiting for his prospects to blossom, the Chicago Cubs will be spending only a small amount of their resources on free agents. With some of those resources, I would like to see a veteran signing to help the outfield or serve as a utility player. A perfect fit for this position is former Cub Sam Fuld. A Stanford grad, Fuld...

Theo Epstein's Best Original Screenplay

It's Oscar Night and as I'm sure many of you know, our own Theo Epstein has Hollywood royalty in his family tree. His great uncle Julius co-authored the screenplay to the 1942 Academy Award winning film, "Casablanca".Some of the famous words from said screenplay have been mutilated in the drawing above, but I don't think Julius or Theo would mind. So...just...
