    Theo!!!! In the name of all things holy, DON'T DO IT!!!!!

    There is NO career in the history of MLB that Chicago can't ruin. There is no possible way this can end well for you!!!!!

    RUN!!!!! Run like a scalded dog!!!! Run like you stole something!!!!!!

    You will NEVER recover from this association.

    Unless Theo is just going for the cash grab, which I doubt he needs, this would end up being the dumbest move of his career.

    History is history. Gone.

    Cubs are the sleeping giant in the division.

    I wonder if Francona would become manager, assuming he doesn't want to take a year off and re-charge the batteries.

    If he broke the streaks of both Boston and Chicago he would be a GM legend...

    I would love to see the Cubs make all of the right moves and still get trounced for the next 100 years by the likes of Cincinnati, Milwaukee, St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Houston.

    Bring in a big name like Epstein and cubs fans will turn on him when they don't win it all next year. Theo would be smart to back away slowly.

    He'll either be a big hero or a big flop.

    I think the bloom is a bit off his "boy genuis" reputation. I'd bet on the flop end of the spectrum. But the Cubs have always scared me. If they ever get their act together, they could be a formidable force in that market and $$$.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Re: Theo Epstein and the Chicago Cubs

    The thought of The Cubs having a GM with a brain scares me.

    Hopefully if Theo does end up in Chicago he signs a lot of John Lackey-esque contracts for them.
