Theo: Dombrowski And Red Sox Addressed Weaknesses

Cubs President Theo Epstein
Former Red Sox GM Theo Epstein was in town to participate in his annual "Business Of Baseball" round table and commented on the Red Sox off-season. Epstein feels that new honcho Dave Dombrowski (who happened to also be on the panel) and the team "really addressed their areas of weakness" over the Winter. Specifically, he cited the acquisition of free-agent David Price to fill the "Ace Void" and the trade for Craig Kimbrel to solidify the closer role. Epstein has already significantly re-vitalized the Cubbies—despite being swept by the Metropolitans last year in the NLCS.
