10/4 Boston report: Cubs ask to talk to Epstein

The Boston Globe reported the Cubs have asked the Red Sox permission to speak to Theo Epstein about the GM job. According to the Globe’s Dan Shaughness, there were meetings at Fenway Park Tuesday regarding the Red Sox’s response to the request. Because Epstein is under contract, the Red Sox would have the right to refuse such a request. However, they could grant it with the condition that some sort of compensation be made in exchange for hiring Epstein. Or Epstein could decline the interest. Epstein, who turns 38 in December, is two months away from the ninth anniversary of his hiring as the Red Sox GM. A Cubs spokesman said the team will have no comment on the GM search.
