Theo Epstein must have been watching too much of the Food Network lately.
On Tuesday, the Cubs president was on 670 The Score talking about the pressure surrounding the organization to bring up their top prospects immediately to Wrigley Field. Chef Epstein had some special thoughts about how to serve the fans' appetite in 2014:
"I was shaking my head at the notion that we should make baseball decisions based on giving our fans cookies. We're cooking the whole meal. We want to give them an annual feast. The only way to make fans happy is to give them pennant races and October baseball if you can pull it off on an annual basis. Nothing is going to get in the way of that."
Do you buy Epstein's plan? What if Javier Baez shows he's ready for the next level during Spring Training? Should Epstein bring him up right away?
