Cubs Owner Talks Theo

Chicago Cubs owner Tom Ricketts spoke with Fox Business Network’s Neil Cavuto about the past season’s performance and rumors that Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein will join the team next season. When asked about the rumors, Ricketts said, “I don’t know; there’s a lot of good candidates out there. We’re going to talk to a handful of them and I’m sure we’ll come up with the right fit for the team.” He also said, “It was a disappointing season for everyone, but, we’re going to get some new leadership."
