Theo Epstein To Chicago Cubs Reportedly Done Deal

Theo Epstein has agreed to a contract with the Chicago Cubsaccording to a report from WEEI's John Dennis. Epstein will reportedly earn $15 million over five years.

The Red Sox gave Epstein permission to speak with the Cubs last week and Epstein is expected to officially join the front office in Chicago by the end of the week.

The move marks an end to Epstein's nine years as GM in Boston, a tenure in which he was the architect for two World Series Championship seasons for the Red Sox. Epstein joins former manager Terry Francona on the bus out of town after the Red Sox finished the 2011-12 season with an epic collapse to miss the postseason.
