JED HOYER RUMORS & GOSSIP

What Should We Expect From Javier Baez?

Despite Jed Hoyer’s best attempt to convince fans otherwise, the Cubs have finally called up mega-prospect Javier Baez. Though he’s only being 22-years old, fans have been clamoring for his promotion since the Cubs traded utility man Emilio Bonifacio and designated the offensively challenged Darwin Barney for assignment. Epstein and Hoyer both denied that the movement of...

Were We All Duped by Team Theo?

I have seen several fans talking about the Chicago Cubs lately wondering if Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and Tom Ricketts pulled the wool over our eyes. Many fans have been complaining that they bought into “The Plan” and now have egg on their faces. Others have been talking about running out of patience with “Team Theo” as nothing has been accomplished lately and that they are...

Cubs weigh position changes for Javier Baez and Kris Bryant

With a straight face, Jed Hoyer said it’s important to focus on what’s up here at Wrigley Field right now — a last-place team flirting with a 100-loss pace. But the Cubs general manager did make a larger point about the obsession with Triple-A/Double-A kids. “It’s fun to look at the box scores in Iowa and Tennessee,” Hoyer said before Tuesday’s 6-0 win over the San...

Cubs rookies come up big in 6-0 victory over Padres

General manager Jed Hoyer's feelings Tuesday night regarding Arismendy Alcantara's immediate future were clear. "It's time for Mendy to play," Hoyer said before Alcantara hit his second home run in nine games since being promoted from Triple-A Iowa.

Deadline Dealers: Cubs Players Likely to be Traded

Cubs General Manager Jed Hoyer and President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein have made no secret of the fact that they are not playing to win this year. Now with the current regime in their 3rd year atop the Cubs brain-trust, Cubs fans are finally starting to see some of the fruits of the labor. We’re hearing stories about Kris Bryant dominating every level of baseball he...

Jed Hoyer Rebuilds The Padres System and Other Lies

You may have heard, but the Padres have a pretty good minor league system. In all seriousness, the Padres minor league system is one of the best, and most certainly one of the deepest, in all of baseball. Usually, in the same articles praising the Padres current organizational success, recently-departed Jed Hoyer is credited with building strong a system and almost as frequently...

Jed Hoyer and Jason McLeod Press Conference

I believe the press conference is scheduled for 3pm CST, maybe EST...so soon. You can allegedly watch a live stream at CSN Chicago. In the meantime, read up on the new scouting director with this very well done Q&A. The rumor mill is rather quiet at the moment, last bit of "news" was that Theo and Jed (sounds like a sitcom title) met with Q-Ball for 7 hours last week...

Did Hoyer Turn His Back On Padres?

Weeks of rumor finally came to fruition last week when Theo Epstein officially agreed to join the Chicago Cubs as President of Baseball Operations. Unfortunately for the Padres, Epstein managed to convince Padres GM Jed Hoyer, and his assistant in San Diego, Jason McLeod, to join him in the windy city. Owner Jeff Moorad quickly moved to replace Hoyer with Josh Byrnes, his former...
