Cubs Ask Red Sox for Permission to Speak with Theo Epstein

According to a report from the Boston Globe, the Cubs have asked the Red Sox for permission to speak with Theo Epstein “regarding a position in their organization.”

Dan Shaughnessy learned from a team source that the Cubs have made contact with the Red Sox front office and “there were meetings at Fenway Park” on Tuesday afternoon regarding the team’s response to the request.

According to the Boston Globe, “Because Epstein is under contract, the Red Sox would have the right to refuse such a request. They could grant it with the condition that some sort of compensation be made in exchange for hiring Epstein. Or Epstein could decline the interest.”
