When Theo Epstein was introduced as President of Baseball Operations for the Chicago Cubs last October, he vowed to change the culture surrounding the Cubs organization. 

After being hired by the Boston Red Sox in 2002 at the age of 28, Epstein became the youngest general manager in the history of Major League Baseball and made a quick impact on the team by leading them to a World Series championship that had—something that had eluded the Red Sox for 86 years. 

Cubs fans are hoping that he will have the same impact on their team, which is seeking their first World Series championship since 1908. While the 2002 Red Sox team was better equipped for a quick turnaround, the Cubs will undergo a year or two of rebuilding before any real success can be expected.
