Theo Hopes Sox And Cubbies Meet In Next World Series
Former Red Sox GM (and notorious Gorilla Suit devotee) Theo Epstein says he hopes his old (especially retiring David Ortiz) and his new team meet in the 2016 World Series. Since his Cubbies met in the 2015 NLCS, his end of the bargain could certainly be upheld. And, the upgrades to the Red Sox starting rotation, bullpen and outfield may have moved The Carmine Hose into serious post-season contentions. Said Epstein about Papi and the Sox, "I'm really rooting for him to put the cherry on top of a Hall of Fame career and to go out on top - well, to get to the World Series and hopefully the Cubs will be there, as well. I'm rooting for him. I'm proud of his entire career, how he's conducted himself and everything he's meant to this organization. He deserves a great year personally and for the club as a whole in his swan song."
