Theo Epstein, Ben Cherington Could Wind Up Competing for Same Managerial Candidates

Theo Epstein has become the president of baseball operations in Chicago and Ben Cherington has become the general manager in Boston. Now, it's time for each to get down to work.

Both Epstein and Cherington could be crossing paths before long, though, as The Boston Globe's Nick Cafardo points out that they could be competing for the same managerial candidates if the Cubs elect not to retain current skipper Mike Quade.

Epstein and Cherington will also have to work out what the Sox will receive as compensation for Epstein, but Cafardo expects that a deal will get done before the Nov. 1 deadline that Bud Selig imposed.

To hear more about Cherington and Epstein from Cafardo, including who some of the Red Sox' managerial candidates could be, check out the video above.
