Theo Epstein Speaks: Sorry to Fans, Edwards Mental Game, Ricketts, Hottovy, More

Chicago Cubs

Chicago Cubs President Theo Epstein is with his struggling team in Milwaukee, and he dropped some pre-game thoughts that I thought you’d want to see.

Frankly, I kinda can’t believe he’s saying some of this stuff, but I suppose there’s no sense in trying to talk around it anymore:

There’s a lot there in quick succession, and probably more to unpack tomorrow. But before tonight’s game – whatever happens – I think it’s notable that Epstein is already being very honest about the disastrous start, and wants to take the blame for the way the roster has been constructed with the resources available. I don’t think it’s accurate that he’s entirely to blame, but it’s also not unfair to note that so many of the additions the last few years have taken up considerable resources and have not worked out so far.

Just win tonight, man. Just win. I would like to talk about a win.
