Cubs will talk to 'handful' for GM job

Asked about the scuttlebutt linking Theo Epstein with the vacant general manager's job with the Chicago Cubs, team owner Tom Ricketts didn't say he was interested in Epstein but didn't say he wasn't.

"I don’t know; there’s a lot of good candidates out there," Ricketts said on Fox Business Network. "We’re going to talk to a handful of them and I’m sure we’ll come up with the right fit for the team.

"Ultimately it will be the decision of myself and my family. Obviously we didn’t get it done on the field this year. It was a disappointing season for everyone, but we’re going to get some new leadership."
