08:02 AM ET 07.17 | A Massachusetts woman warned to stay away from Chicago Cubs president Theo Epstein was arrested near his Lakeview home this week after telling police she was "inviting Mr. Epstein to go to church." Kathleen Kearney, 44, arrested the woman about 6 p.m. Monday in the 1400 block of West Addison Street, about two blocks from Epstein's five-bedroom home. 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, of Canton, Mass., was charged this morning with two counts of felony stalking, police said.

Epstein's going to need more than religion to turn the Cubbies around - he needs a full blown miracle...

Considering the police took her to Epstein's house isn't that entrapment?

That is how I read it too. Not sure who to blame--the reporter, the editor, or whoever excerpted the story for FN.

So nice of the police and the media to publish Theo's address....morons.

It's actually 1313 Mockingbird Lane.

Is this the same woman who's been stalking Cashman? That's taking the Yanks-Sox rivalry a little far!

Uh, elephant in the room alert: church? Theo go to church? Lady, you lose all of your psycho cred when you cite the wrong religion...

Go easy on her. She just wanted to know why Theo gave all that money to Carl Crawford and John Lackey.
