Reaction as Theo Takes Over

Theo Epstein was introduced today as the President of Baseball Operations for the Chicago Cubs. Click here for the article and video from CSN Chicago.

Jed Hoyer and Jason McLeod will be introduced later in the week, no later than next Monday.

Here were some of the tweets that were being sent out today regarding #Esptein.

  • Jon Heyman- Cherington said that compensation from the Cubs was agreed to be significant.

  • Jon Heyman- No matter who was hired to run the Cubs, Quade was a goner. He was Hendery's guy. Of course, why pay Theo $3.7 million to leave status quo.

  • CSN Mooney- Theo says he never asked for a contract extension or new role with the Red Sox.

  • Len Kasper- The thing about Theo that is common among brightest people I've met--he's not condescending,he listens.Less is more. Great vibe.

  • Chris DeLuca- Theo says if Francona hadn't left the Red Sox, he would have stayed another year.

  • David Kaplan- By the way, yes that was Theo at Starbucks a couple of weeks ago. He confirmed.

  • WGN TV- It certainly feels great to be a Cub today.
