The defending world champion Chicago Cubs are at Fenway Park to play the Boston Red Sox for the first time since 2014. This is a high profile series with a lot of story lines: the return of Theo Epstein after breaking yet another baseball curse, the return of former Red Sox pitcher Jon Lester, John Lackey, and Koji Uehara, and the coming together of some of baseball’s brightest young stars in Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, and others.
