I can get him the most kickass weed he's ever smoked.
things just seem to fall in place....this, plus the fact that there is far better "talent" in the stands on the North side versus the south side makes for a perfect balance for his personal needs....

Baseball America’s Jim Callis offers his thoughts on the ongoing compensation discussions between the Red Sox and Cubs with respect to Theo Epstein: “Baseball sources believe that Selig won’t want to establish a premium value for front-office officials and will side more with Chicago. It’s uncertain whether the Cubs will give up one or two players, but in any case, I don’t think it will be anyone who will make the Boston Top 10. If the Red Sox have to choose from among second-tier prospects, they should target catcher Steve Clevenger and lefthanded reliever Jeff Beliveau. Clevenger is a lefthanded hitter with solid defensive skills and positional versatility, making him an ideal big league backup. Beliveau works at 88-91 mph with his fastball and doesn’t have a true plus pitch, but the ball seems to come out of his sleeve and hitters just don’t square him up.”


You'll get nothing, Boston, and like it!

yeah, selig is such a hater when it comes to FO compensation, esp for a team like the sox that gives their draft picks above slot signing bonuses all the damn time.

We had nothing before...regardless of your Theo-hate, it's a step into the 20th century, at the least, for the Cubs.

When you can come up with a precedent for a team giving up high-level prospects for a GM moving to another team and getting a promotion - we'll be glad to hear it.

Cubs new president of baseball operations Theo Epstein built two World Series titles on the idea of his hitters taking as many pitches as possible.

It’s a new way of baseball that is translating into success. The idea is simple: if you take more pitches, you tire out the pitcher, creating more at-bats, ultimately leading to more runs.

New White Sox hitting coach Jeff Manto has a different view when it comes to taking pitches. telling The Mully and Hanley Show that walks set up double-play balls.

“Do we want Adam Dunn taking a ball (when it is) off the plate with a man on third and the infield back and you got (Justin) Verlander throwing and he walks him? I don’t know,” Manto said.

Ha, it's almost like DFB is managing the Pale Hose.

Almost like? its almost a word for word re-quote. Neifi Perez will be signed to play short any day now.

Theo and company being very thorough in the selection process for hiring a manager. Gotta respect that.
11/12/2011 5:55 PM
TheoCo has been deliberate in every thing he's done so far.

YAY!!! Big Z gets another chance!

All they did was have lunch.  It's still 75% he's somewhere else in 2012.
