Theo Epstein to Join Commissioner’s Office After Leaving Cubs

Former Cubs and Red Sox executive Theo Epstein will join the MLB commissioner’s office as a consultant in 2021, the league announced on Thursday.

Epstein will “work with baseball analytics experts from the Commissioner’s Office and the Clubs to determine the likely effects of various contemplated rule changes,” per an MLB statement.

“This is one of the most accomplished and thoughtful people in our sport,” Manfred said on Thursday. “I am grateful that he has accepted our invitation to complement our ongoing efforts and provide his insights on making the best game in the world even better for the next generation.

I agree. It would be an interesting approach to filling the position.

I suppose choosing a commissioner who seems to like baseball would be a novel approach.

Right, baseball hasn't hired a commissioner who likes baseball in almost 30 years.

Well, they've hired only one so far in almost 25 years so. . .
