Another one on his way out of Boston?

First the Red Sox cut ties with manager Terry Francona, now it seems general manager Theo Epstein might be on his way out.

While the Tigers have taken a lead in Game 3 of the ALCS, this has been the bubbling behind-the-scenes baseball story of the night. The Boston Herald reported that a deal is on the cusp for Epstein to leave the Red Sox to accept a larger role with the Cubs.┬áVarious other reports suggest the move expected to happen, but it’s not quite a done deal. The Cubs would have to provide some sort of compensation, players or cash.

According to my old friend Pete Abraham at the Boston Globe:

If Epstein leaves, the Red Sox have given every indication that senior vice president and assistant general manager Ben Cherington would replace him. A 36-year-old New Hampshire native and Amherst graduate, Cherington has been with the Red Sox since 1999.
