Photo of the Day: Theo Epstein shows off bunting skills

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

Cubs staffers held a bunting tournament on Saturday in Arizona. As part of said tournament, team prez of baseball ops Theo Epstein flashed his small-ball chops. Take it away, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune ...

The bat angle suggests that Theo has designs on the first-base line. Aiming to move the runner along or hoping to spike the hell out of the pitcher covering the bag? The latter, no doubt.

Anyhow, as for the results of the bunting tournament,'s Carrie Muskat tells us that "video dude Nate Halm" prevailed. Enjoy the spoils of triumph, Mr. Halm.
