Epstein understands fan frustration in Cubs' slow offseason

CHICAGO (AP) Theo Epstein understands the fans' frustration. He feels it, too, at times.

The Chicago Cubs went from 95 wins in 2018 to 84 last year, finished third in the NL Central behind St. Louis and Milwaukee and missed the playoffs for the first time since 2014. But when it comes to big moves this offseason, well, they have a new manager. Otherwise, they've been keeping the bat on their shoulder.

"I understand the frustration," said Epstein, the Cubs' president of baseball operations. "There's a lot of days I'm frustrated, too, where you look out and there's a great fit on a player who you know you can recruit and might sign a reasonable deal that he's worth. And you can't get that player. And that's frustrating. But that's the reality."
