Officially Official: Cubs GM Jed Hoyer and Scouting and Player Development Chief Jason McLeod Extended

Chicago Cubs News

Woo hoo!

Not that there was any concern after it was reported in tandem with President Theo Epstein’s long-awaited extension, but good news is still good news:


“Jed and Jason are simply the best at what they do and have played fundamentally important leadership roles in helping the Cubs build a healthy and thriving organization,” Theo Epstein said in a statement. “We feel honored to have the stability and support that we enjoy throughout Baseball Operations and look forward to many years of working together in Chicago.”

It’s still technically possible that a team could poach Hoyer or McLeod away for a promotion, but for now, the band is staying together. And that’s a very good thing.
