Via Sahadev Sharma, who was tweeting away madly from the Winter Meetings this afternoon, we have a large collection of quotes from Theo Epstein. Here's my favorite:

The summary of the rest of the quotes is: the Cubs have an offer out for a free-agent reliever, a free-agent starter and a trade offer for a position player.

He also noted that Jeff Samardzija is, at the present time, expected to be the Cubs' Opening Day starter, and:

Theo also noted that the Cubs are looking for the Wrigley renovation and new TV deals to bring in much more revenue, and at that time, they expect to be "significantly more active."
