Theo Epstein Squeal Watch: So, About That Press Conference

It looks unlikely that Theo will be announced today (Tuesday is the next open date), though the deal remains “on track.” Hoyer should follow soon after. If anyone knows what happened yesterday to screw things up, nobody’s talking.

Mike Quade is Still in the Dark, Still Waiting, and Other Bullets

Quade hasn’t heard from Cubs brass since the season ended. Ryne Sandberg is likely to leave Phillies organization, Marlon Byrd wants a culture change, Bryan LaHair eats souls, and the Astros sale is getting ugly.

Multiple reports say the deal is basically done, and will be announced tomorrow. I’m not quite ready to squeal, but we’re getting ever closer. UPDATE: Bruce Levine says the press conference is happening tomorrow; er, now he’s back-tracking.

Theo Epstein Afternoon Update: The Jed Hoyer Rumors Are Getting Louder

Theo Epstein Afternoon Update: The Jed Hoyer Rumors Are Getting Louder

Hoyer won’t comment, and is “concentrating” on the Padres (which sounds like Epstein’s initial denial). Most pundits, including those in San Diego, believe someone is coming to the Cubs from the Padres. Peter Gammons dumps on the Cubs.

Theo Epstein Squeal Watch: Waiting for President Epstein?

Epstein may already be looking for a GM, and various San Diego executives are targeted. The compensation fight drags on, but the Boston employee fight might be over. An announcement today is considered unlikely.

The Cubs would like someone like Hoyer to join the front office to work under Theo Epstein. And, in the interim, if the Red Sox continue to take a hard line on Epstein, that person could run the show in Chicago.
