The Chicago Cubs and president of baseball operations Theo Epstein have agreed to a five-year contract extension.Epsteins initial contract -- signed in 2011 as a five-year deal worth $18.5 million -- was set to expire at the end of this season, and his status was one of the few unanswered questions of the Cubs season so far.Its everything I could have asked for. There is no place Id rather be, Epstein told reporters Wednesday. Im thrilled this worked out.Epstein and Cubs owner Tom Ricketts first discussed the extension during spring training and then at various points during the summer.I told him I thought he was the best in the game at what he did, and he told me no matter what I paid him he wasnt going to leave Chicago, so we were off to a good start, Ricketts said. The time and energy to do it the right way has paid off with a team that should be successful for years to come.While terms of the deal were not disclosed,?Todays Knuckleball reported that it will pay Epstein a little less than $50 million over the five years, although incentives could take him over that number.I think its in the range, its competitive and where it should be for someone who I think is the best baseball executive in the game, Ricketts said.?The thing that Ive seen the last five years is how well he handles people, how well he chooses people for his [front office] team, how well he chooses players for his team. And his ability to judge character and put together the right human resources on the same team has been truly remarkable.?The National League Central champions are on pace to finish the season with the best record in baseball by a wide margin. They head into the postseason as a team without a glaring weakness: great offense, stellar defense, outstanding rotation, the best relief corps in baseball and a canny manager in Joe Maddon.The teams 100-and-counting wins this season marks the first the time club has broken the century mark since 1935.Epstein was a former front-office man for the Boston Red Sox,?becoming the youngest general manager in MLB history in 2002. He is widely credited with building the squads that won the 2004 and 2007 World Series.Epstein resigned from Boston in 2011 to become president of baseball operations for the Cubs. During Epsteins first three years at Wrigley, the team finished in last place in the NL Central. Last season, it advanced to the National League Championship Series as a wild-card team but was swept by the New York Mets.Epstein said this was a pretty easy negotiation because he wanted to stay in Chicago.I told [Ricketts] if we couldnt work out a contract it would get awkward, because I would still keep showing up to work as an employee at will ruining my leverage, Epstein said.The team also gave extensions to general manager Jed Hoyer and vice president of amateur scouting and player development Jason McLeod.

The club announced the surgery following a 5-3 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. Nike Pegasus 32 Nere . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. Air Max 97 Gold Uscita .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night.Mixu Paatelainen says Dundee United will cope with the loss of Gavin Gunning against Hibernian in Saturdays Scottish Cup semi-final. The Irishman left Tannadice earlier this week following a bizarre incident against Inverness Caledonian Thistle last weekend.Gunning picked up the ball and walked off the park after half-an-hour of the 2-0 home defeat but Paatelainen insists the reasons for his departure will remain private. Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ ahead of the Sky Live encounter, the Finn said: It was very unfortunate. Things happened which I couldnt tolerate and I made a decision that Gavin would not play for us again this season. Mixu Paatelainen makes feelings known to Gavin Gunning after walk-off at Tannadice I explained we wanted to keep the reasons private. He is away now so these things happen and we go forward. We have a strong squad of players and I am looking forward to the semi-final.Dundee United lost 3-0 to Hibernian in the League Cup quarter-finals last November but former Hibs and United striker Paatelainen says that game will have no bearing on the outcome of Saturdays game. Mixu confident United will cope without Gunning That was very early doors and obviously we didnt deserve anything from that match, he added.dddddddddddd. Were playing a lot better at the moment and hopefully Saturday is a good day for us.We do realise also that Hibs are a good, very energetic, mobile team with dangerous strikers and we need to be on our toes and make sure we dont give them any openings. But we have the players who can hurt them as well. Hibs are struggling for form with just two wins from 11 games Hibs head to Hampden on the back of a poor run which has seen them win just two of their last 11 matches, a stat Paatelainen says should be ignored.Every match is a new adventure and you never know what can happen, he said. You might have a poor run and then you change it around and you go on a run of victories.Obviously we are hoping that is not the case and that Hibs inconsistencies remain and we take advantage of that but who are we to say anything because we have been pretty inconsistent as wellSome days weve been brilliant, playing attractive and effective football and then the next match it doesnt go well at all. Theres a few question marks up in the air for both teams, but it is a match I am looking forward to.
