So twitter had this bouncing around this morning first as topic that Kenney was actually out, but that link went dead quickly but then returned as this

Crane Kenney Won't Return as Cubs President according to a source

Now before everyone breaks out the celebratory drink, after reading more about this on various sites it doesn't appear to have much meat. But its good to dream.

The biggest issue is the "unnamed source" combined with the fact that this hasn't been reported or hinted at by anyone else- including Brett who has always done a great job of reporting "rumors" and "news" that have some meat.

Secondly, it really doesn't say anything substantial. It basically says that Kenney may not return as "President" but could simply have a title change.

But this has been all over Twitter this morning and what I enjoy and slightly despise about social media is that non-news can be come news due to the discussion and it takes a keen eye to wade through the news worth reading and news that is simply opinion with a dressed up headline.

But it worth a discussion on the message board.

Yep, if this is true, it has to be part of a plan to woo an Andrew Friedman or Theo Epstein to our fair city. And I will drink to that

Dave Kaplan just report on Twitter


@thekapman Report on Crane Kenney that is making rounds is 100% false according to Cubs sources. "He is going nowhere. Where does this stuff come from?


it was fun while it lasted.

Whether or not this happens, I'm still one of those people who's a bit clueless as to what is so awful about Kenney as the "business president."

I'm NOT saying he should be retained, nor am I defending him. I'm just saying I still don't quite get the hate.

My guess is he will be "re-titled" to continue as the business president.

Well I'll be going to get some pulled pork from a nearby by BBQ joint and then drink some Bell's Hopslam during my game day play-by-play. Yummy time for me.
