Epstein on top of Draft due diligence
MIAMI -- Theo Epstein has been spending a lot of time at high school and college baseball games to prepare for the upcoming First-Year Player Draft, which will begin on June 4.

The Cubs have the sixth overall pick, plus two selections in the supplemental round.

"I go out every year and see at least 15 to 20 guys a year to stay current and stay on top of it," said Epstein, the Cubs' president of baseball operations. "It also gives me a chance to get to know our scouts, too."

Don't the kids recognize him in the stands?

"I stay pretty incognito," he said.
