Cubs to announce Epstein as president

October 24, 2011 11:08:29 AM PDT
After long and drawn out negotiations with the Boston Red Sox, the Chicago Cubs will finally introduce the team's new president of baseball operations.

The Cubs will hold a news conference Tuesday morning for Theo Epstein at Wrigley Field. Epstein led the Red Sox to two World Series titles as their general manager, exorcising the "Curse of the Bambino."

Now, Epstein will try to overcome the "Curse of the Billy Goat" and lead the Cubs to their first World Series title, since 1908.
