Theo Epstein Definitely Maybe Seen Near Wrigley Field

The Chicago Tribune reported yesterday that a Lakeview resident, and lifelong Cubs fan, was 99.9 percent sure he saw Theo Epstein at a Starbucks kinda near Wrigley Field.

Well, if it's in The Chicago Tribune. . . it has to be true. 
I mean, It's THE Tribune. It's not like the report came from some blog where they do their "reporting" out of their basement while wearing underwear and eating lucky charms. No sir, this story has been corroborated by "one Lakeview resident in a purple T-shirt" according to Tribune reporter Paul Sullivan. And if Paul Sullivan wrote it - it's gotta be solid. Because Paul Sullivan is a real life reporter. I mean, obviously Mr. Sullivan went to an esteemed university where he earned his journalism degree - probably with honors. (Ok, we just looked it up... Paul Sullivan only has a B.A. in English from Mizzou... close enough) What we are trying to say is, it's not like it was written by some hacks who would rather photoshop a funny picture than actually make sure things are true.
We're certain it's true, and it can mean only on thing: Theo Epstein is going to be the next General Manager of the Chicago Cubs... as soon as the Cubs ship Starlin Castro to the Red Sox as compensation.


  1. ok,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    we can do this nothing to lose, there is more

    fish in the pound. i have been a cub fan sence 1942

    let go get tho...................


  2. Castro isn't going anywhere, he is part of the Cubs future. I want Epstein but for Castro?? Bullcrap, i hope that's just a dumb rumor and not true. I know Theo is a high price but shipping Castro for him, no way. Trade a couple top prospects (not Brett Jackson) for him.

  3. I can't believe Sullivan went to Misery...I mean Missouri. That explains a lot.

    Theo can rebuild, so spend/trade whatever takes (except Castro) to get him.

    And Theo went to Yale so Sullivan better bone up on his grammar if and when he interviews him.
