Tyler Colvin is rumored to be the player going to the Boston Red Sox as compensation for Theo Epstein. That would be the greatest thing of all time, as Tyler Colvin isn’t going to be a guy the Cubs were hoping he would be, and with the Cubs having a ton of talent in their outfield throughout the minor leagues- I don’t think anyone will miss Colvin.
Theo Epstein was worth every bit of Tyler Colvin…that much is for sure.
This isn’t a done deal, but I expect something to get done by at least the end of the winter meetings if not way sooner. I think everyone wants to put this behind them, but it seems clear top prospect Trey McNutt will not be traded to Boston as compensation. Thank Goodness.
