Jed Hoyer on Cubs Weekly

Jordan Bernfield, who is now hanging out with the fine folks at Cubs Den, hosted Cubs GM Jed Hoyer on his Cubs Weekly show on WGN Radio today.  I very rarely listen to the radio, but because I appreciate how transparent and honest Theo Epstein and Hoyer are with the team, and how well Bernfield conducts his show and questions, it was well worth my time.  You can follow Jordan Bernfield...

Jed Hoyer during SABR GM panel

Jed Hoyer had some interesting things to say during the GM panel at SABR. ON THE ROLE OF SCOUTS Hoyer: "The scouts they know that I have an analytical bent, and that my bosses have that.

Jed Hoyer and Jason McLeod Press Conference

I believe the press conference is scheduled for 3pm CST, maybe soon. You can allegedly watch a live stream at CSN Chicago.
