Theo Epstein has no plans to leave Cubs amid Red Sox rumors

Theo Epstein Cubs

The Boston Red Sox have an open executive job, and there’s been growing speculation that a Theo Epstein reunion could be in the cards. Not according to Epstein, at least.

While there doesn’t appear to be a lot behind the speculation, some reports, including one from the Boston Globe, have linked the Red Sox and their lack of a hire of a new president to potentially luring Epstein away from the Chicago Cubs. Epstein shot down that speculation on Wednesday, saying that he has plenty of work left to do with his current organization.

The chatter linking Epstein to Boston always seemed more like wishful thinking than grounded in anything real. Epstein has two more seasons on his current contract, and there’s no indication that he’s unhappy or losing influence with ownership despite the team’s disappointing season. He has big decisions to make, including the future of his manager. He doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.
