Epstein shows he's in control of Cubs
CHICAGO – If there were any lingering questions about Theo Epstein’s decision-making power, wonder no more.
This is Epstein’s time to shine, and as the Cubs’ president of baseball operations, he’s molding the organization to his standard. Epstein took another step Wednesday to remake the remaining personnel from the Jim Hendry era.
The Cubs fired Oneri Fleita, vice president of player personnel, a day after he was a part of the official team photo and hung around batting practice. Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts signed Fleita to a four-year contract last year. Epstein determined the Cubs needed to head in another direction after evaluating the organization for the past 10 months.
