Although not one of the top priorities for Theo Epstein, the new Cubs President may at some point reach out to Steve Bartman. When asked if he would consider reaching out to Bartman,â†µ
"I haven't talked to anyone here at the Cubs about that, but from afar, it seems like it would be an important step, maybe a cathartic moment that would allow people to move forward together," Epstein said.â†µ
"I'm all about having an open mind, an open heart and forgiveness," Epstein said. "I think those are good characteristics for an organization to have as well.â†µ
"Look, he's a Cubs fan. That's the most important thing. We need to come together as an organization, the fans, the ownership, the front office, the players, everybody, if we're going to get this thing done. I'm sure it's something that will come up at the right time."â†µ
Just another example of that no matter what the Cubs do, Bartman is somehow mentioned......even eight years after the fact.
