It looks like the Chicago Cubs have found a new general manager. According to the "Boston Herald," Theo Epstein is on the verge of leaving the Boston Red Sox to become the Northsiders new GM. An announcement is reportedly expected to be made in the next day or two.
There are, however, a couple things getting in the way of current negotiations. The "Herald" is reporting that the BoSox are making a last-ditch effort to keep Epstein and also want some sort of compensation for letting the 37-year-old out of his current contract with Boston. He has one year left on his remaining deal.
