Epstein on Maddon's comments about 'pipe dream' of beating Cubs in World Series


by - Senior Editor -

Veteran manager Joe Maddon held his introductory press conference for the Angels recently and talked about how much he enjoyed his time in Chicago.

Maddon concluded the press conference saying that his 'pipe dream' would be to beat the Cubs in the World Series.

"The ultimate goal is we play them in the World Series and beat 'em," he said. "That would be my pipe dream right there."

Cubs President of Operations Theo Epstein was asked about those comments on Monday and was very open that both teams have some work to go to fulfill that prophecy.

"I wouldn't sign up for that entire thing, but maybe if we find a way to win those four games, that'd be nice," Epstein said. "Lots of work ahead on both sides before we can start talking that way. I look forward to the process of working and then playing our way into that conversation."
