Trying to piece together the coverage for the Theo Epstein news conference in Chicago introducing him as President of the Cubs and then the one in Boston formally announcing Ben Cherington as General Manager of the Red Sox.
The Cubs press conference is expected to start around noon Eastern. The Red Sox presser is slated to begin at 3 p.m. ET.
