The Chicago Cubs are 36-52 and currently the NL Central’s second-best team if you’re looking at the standings upside down. Even still, despite his squad’s undeniable, irrefutable awfulness, Cubs president Theo Epstein has somehow managed to find himself a really, really hardcore fan.
According to the Chicago Tribune, a Massachusetts woman named Kathleen Kearney was arrested near Epstein's home on Monday and charged with two counts of felony stalking.
Kearney, 44, apparently admitted to police that she had been warned to stay away from the Cubs boss, but insisted that she was simply interested in “inviting Mr. Epstein to go to church."

Kearney told officers she had been watching the home that Epstein shares with his wife Marie and young son, Jack, and was going there to extend the invitation, police said.
The officers took Kearney to Epstein's home, where he identified her as the person who had been warned about stalking near his home, police said.
Kearney will appear in court later today.
