Ben Cherington, Theo Epstein Pulling for Each Other in New Positions

Theo Epstein and Ben Cherington became great friends while working together in the Red Sox organization, so although Epstein is now with the Cubs, the two will be pulling for each other in their new positions.

Epstein and Cherington both admitted that they'll be rooting for the other's team, except when the two teams meet up in Chicago in June. They also spoke glowingly of their time together in Boston, during which each learned a great deal from each other.

NESN's Jayme Parker caught up with Cherington and Epstein at the Hot Stove Cool Music Roundtable in Boston this past week. And although she tried to get some answers as to what the Red Sox will receive as compensation from the Cubs for Epstein, the two were focused on the evening's festivities and helping to raise money for a good cause.
