Chicago Cubs President and General Manager Theo Epstein will be trying to take over the world after he has recently been named the world’s greatest leader by Fortune magazine.

Chicago Cubs President and General Manager Theo Epstein has a new title, the world’s greatest leader. He was named the world’s greatest leader by Fortune magazine on Thursday.

Alibaba founder Jack Ma was second, Pope Francis was third, Melinda Gates was fourth and Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos was fifth. LeBron James of the Cleveland Cavaliers came in at number 11 on the list.

The Cubs general manager doesn’t believe that he deserves the title of world’s greatest leader.

“Um, I can’t even get my dog to stop peeing in the house. That is ridiculous. The whole thing is patently ridiculous,” he said in a text to ESPN’s Buster Olney. “It’s baseball — a pastime involving a lot of chance. If [Ben] Zobrist’s ball is three inches farther off the line, I’m on the hot seat for a failed five-year plan. And I’m not even the best leader in our organization; our players are.”

It’s surprising that Epstein is number one on this list. Yes, he helped the Cubs win their first World Series title in 108 years, but he beat politicians and even the pope.

Since he is the world’s greatest leader, if someone on the Cubs staff asks him what he’s doing tomorrow Epstein can say the same thing I do every day, try to take over the world. Before he can take over the world though he’ll have to get his dog to stop peeing in the house.
