Cubs: Message from fans to Theo Epstein and Joe Maddon very clear

Former Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon and current Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein have had a bit of a tit-for-tat over Joe’s leaving. Guys, Cubs fans don’t want to hear it.

It started with a parting in St. Louis. Theo Epstein and Joe Maddon, after a night of drinks and reminiscing, decided Maddon would be moving on. The band was breaking up. Ok, fine. It happens. In their press conference, they talked about how these things happen, you know, managers and front-office execs grow apart. It was eerily like watching two parents explain divorce to the kids.
