Epstein expects to remain with Cubs at least for next season

CHICAGO (AP) Theo Epstein appears to be gearing up for one more go-round as the Chicago Cubs' president of baseball operations.

Epstein said Monday his expectation is the "status quo" when it comes to the team's leadership and he anticipates remaining on the job for at least one more season, with his contract set to expire in 2021.

"I'm a Cub," Epstein said during an hourlong conference call. "I think the status quo right now is the most likely outcome."
