JED HOYER RUMORS & GOSSIP

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.

We’re hearing stories about Kris Bryant dominating every level of baseball he...

Cubs GM Hoyer says trade talk is ‘nonexistent’ (for now)

Cubs GM Jed Hoyer used one word to describe trade talks: “Nonexistent.” (For now.) The Cubs won’t change direction after beating Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals. But at least Friday’s 6-5 victory at Wrigley Field will give them two chances this weekend to finally win their first series this season. The Cubs have gotten bounce-back performances from core players...

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. The worst thing you can do is change their mindset. You're hiring them for their eyes and their instincts, and you want them to go out and scout. You want to take their report and combine...

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...
