Thank God, I was afraid he was going to have to live under an overpass, or in a van down by the river!!!

This has me really excited for the "Theo takes a dump in his new bathroom" thread!

A decorator needs to really fix that kitchen and bathroom. Yikes.

Glad he bought that house. I was losing sleep whether or not Theo was going to have a big enough living space for him and Jed Hoyer to feed grapes to one another as comfort during one of the Cubs patented losing streaks.

Can we have Patrick Sharp put in bids on Rios, Dunn and Peavy? :smile:

Good lord, the guy is going to have to wear sunglasses to go to the john.

Like the prison yard look of the patio. No homeless guy is going to wander into that. Nice of them to give out the address. Ronnie Woo Woo will be on the front lawn most days.

No grass to take care of = Dream come true

Exactly. I wish I had no grass. Although it's mostly dirt, and I have a friend that cuts it for only $20 every two weeks.

Still, I'd love a concrete or brick yard.

Not quite, unless Theo starts holding a minyan on the Wrigley field grass before games.

I hear he's trading in the Astro for a Town & Country, now that he's rich and all.

Must be nice to live 8 blocks from work

I live 6 blocks away. It's not that nice of a location.

It's all public record that anyone can find out.

EDIT: Though he did buy using a trust, so it would have taken a little digging to figure it out, I guess.

The important thing in this story is that if Sharpie is looking to dump $3 million on a house, that he is probably looking to stay in Chicago a long time.

Not really

FWIW, Ozzie just bought a new house in Bucktown in what? August?

Are there any updates on whether he's picked out any linens yet?

LOL!
And is there a registry where we can order housewarming gifts? :D:

I'd worry about the fans running over there after a game gone bad but then I remembered the fanbase.... they probably don't even keep track of wins or losses. It's like my golf game, I judge a round by how many balls I lose. They judge a game by how many beers they drink.

If he chose white hand towels for the bathroom, he may end up wiping his hands on his pants before he finds them...

How long til the endless Theo Epstein updates start going straight to the Roadhouse?

I live in the neighborhood and went by there yesterday... The place is huge. It's almost like you could play basketball in the front room.

Does anyone think drunken Cubs fans will decide it's a good idea to show up at Theo's house after spending five hours in the CubbieBear singing "Go Cubs Go" after a loss?

Seems like a bad location for him to live, especially now his exact location is all over the internet.

If you really wanted to, you could pretty easily find the addresses of most of the Cub players and coaches, many of whom also live in the Wrigleyville area and I don't ever recall there being a problem. I know when you bring up the map on Google, the distance doesn't look like anything, but when you're drunk and stumbling around, the walk from Sheffield to Ashland is an eternity.

Ok, so you don't think any Cubs fans live in a very close proximity to his house?

The guy is like Jesus on the northside. I find it hard to believe drunken idiots won't be showing up his house.

:dunno:

All I'm saying is I know for a fact that Dempster, Fukudome, Theriot, and I think Zambrano and Quade all lived in the Wrigleyville area, too, and you didn't have to work too hard to find their addresses, either, and somehow they staved off throngs of torch-bearing Baby Bear zealots.

First time I came to Chicago was 2004 for a bachelor party weekend. 14 of us stumbled around downtown for 2 days. A year later we went back with the wives/girlfriends and were shocked to find out we didn't really leave a 4 block radius, yet we seemed to walk forever! "We went there, we went there, we went there, we went there...." That's what makes Chicago such a great city.
