Theo Epstein Has A Deal With The Chicago Cubs, According To Report

Theo Epstein has a deal in place with the Chicago Cubs, according to a text message SB Nation Boston received from Boston radio station 98.5 The Sports Hub. Epstein's contract is reportedly worth $20 million over five years.

The deal would make Epstein the latest member of the Red Sox organization to leave Boston. He departs following a disastrous season in which Boston finished the 2011 season 7-20, costing the Red Sox a spot in the postseason. In eight season in Boston, the former Red Sox GM orchestrated two World Series Championships, including Boston's first title since 1918.
