Cubs | Theo Epstein announcement could take a while

The Chicago Cubs' finalization of the deal that will bring Boston Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein to Chicago will likely have to wait until after the World Series due to MLB policies discouraging teams from making big announcements during the Fall Classic. There is speculation that Epstein may be trying to pry general manager Jed Hoyer away from the San Diego Padres. The Cubs and Red Sox are still trying to agree on compensation for Epstein, with the Red Sox trying to replenish their pitching in the minors. The BoSox are believed to be targeting Ps Trey McNutt and Christopher Carpenter.
