Theo Epstein resigned as Red Sox GM on Friday night, and has been officially hired as the President of Baseball Operations for the Chicago Cubs. The terms of compensation have not been fully worked out, so Epstein resigned to speed up the moving process.
The Sox will likely get several minor league players in exchange for the most accomplished executive in club history. Boston fans should be glad this ordeal is coming to a close, so the Red Sox can announce new GM Ben Cherington and start fixing up this team. Cherington should be announced on Tuesday, which is the next off day for the World Series.
