Cubs Seek Permission to Talk to Boston GM Epstein, Globe Reports

Oct. 5 (Bloomberg) -- The Chicago Cubs are seeking permission to talk to Boston Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein about a job with the National League team, the Boston Globe reported without saying where it got the information.

Epstein, 37, who has spent nine years with the Red Sox, may decline to speak with the Cubs, the Globe said. The Red Sox can also turn down the request or grant a meeting contingent on the Cubs paying compensation if they hire him, it said.

If Epstein leaves the Major League Baseball team, Ben Cherington, senior vice president and assistant general manager, may be his successor, the Globe said. Cherington, who joined the Red Sox in 1999, was among team executives who attended the meeting that led to manager Terry Francona’s departure last week.

The Cubs declined to comment on the report, according to an e-mail from Peter Chase, the team’s director of media relations.
