Theo Epstein Talks Cubs, Mean Tweets, Curt Schilling, and More on ‘Pardon My Take’

Chicago Cubs News

The fellas over at Barstool Sports – a sports/comedy site that is not for everyone – have a podcast called ‘Pardon My Take.’

If you’re unfamiliar, the show is hosted by two Barstool personalities, Big Cat & PFT, and it is wildly popular. Earlier this spring, they had Anthony Rizzo on a show, and Kyle Schwarber on another.

Additionally – and news-generatingly! – they were able to land a pretty big fish: the World’s Greatest Leader, Cubs President of Baseball Operation Theo Epstein.

Epstein made for a pretty funny interview – you’ll especially enjoy the anecdote about Curt Schilling.

You can listen to the entire thing here.


You can also watch part of the interview (including the mean tweets part) on YouTube. But if you’re planning on watching/listening to it in the office or in public, I’ll warn you that there are some, eh hem, NSFW comments.


Here’s the clip of the Curt Schilling “Negotiating for Dummies” story, straight from Epstein himself. Just try not to laugh.

And just in case ever find yourself negotiating against Theo, here’s your book! Good luck!
