    There just long enough to make a sweetheart deal for his buddy Theo who is now rewarding him with another GM job. Sigh...

    Like I said, if I'm a Padres fan I would be pissed as it appears Hoyer doesn't have the best interest of the Padres organization in his thoughts.

    I think Padres fans should have realized that when the deal first happened. If I were a team owner I'd be leery of hiring any of Epstein's frat boy proteges and letting the make deals with him. Very incestuous.

    It's done, according to source: Hoyer to join Theo as GM of Cubs, Byrnes new GM in SD

    I despise the Cubs. Outside of the Red Sox, they are my least favorite team. But I like this move for them. As much crap as we give Theo, he did change the Red Sox for the better, and hopefully he can do that for the Cubs.

    Kind of like when Gabe Paul traded Graig Nettles to the Yankees for a bunch of junk shortly before he became part of an an investment group organized by George Steinbrenner to purchase the Yankees. Talk about your conflict of interests. Of course he made that trade not knowing he was going to the Yankees. wink-wink nudge-nudge

    I hated that trade when it was made and didn't consider Charlie Spikes and Big Bad John Ellis junk.

    They're reporting a 5 year deal for Hoyer- he'll need it. Hard to imagine the stench of this whole thing would make him a good hire if he had to go back on the open market

    We joke about a lot of stuff, but I recall a post awhile ago where saying Casey Kelly would be traded for Adrian Gonzalez and Hoyer would end up with a special consultant job back in Boston.

    It kind of actually happened.

    I know Rizzo having a good week in MLB validated the trade for a certain sox poster here, but it doesn't look like it did for Hoyer's bosses.

    Re: The Red Sox Thread

    If Theo wins a WS with the Cubs, he'll forever leave his mark on the game and will be talked about for generations to come - as a man defiantly staring two "curses" in the face and defeating both. The only question after that is who will play him in the movie?

    Re: The Red Sox Thread

    Oh...and may Theo's successor(s) in Boston fail and fail badly, just like those who preceded him.

    That would be one of the all time greatest accomplishments in sports history. However I will continue rooting for the goat.

    The stench is pretty rancid...unbelievable.

    I read that Theo actually wanted Byrnes and he turned him down and then went to Hoyer...

    Re: The Red Sox Thread

    I don't understand why Hoyer is agreeing to all this. Isn't this career suicide for him?

    Funny thing about this all is that I've now heard the sports radio crowd complaining that they could have had AG for nothing had they just waited... and they haven't even figured out that they could have had a shot at Pujols instead....

    I can't imagine the Jays agreeing to that

    The Toronto Blue Jays will not stand in the way if another team is interested in hiring one of its employees.
    There is no need for rival clubs to formally seek permission for an interview, to work within a negotiating window, or face a request for compensation. Blue Jays employees are free to speak with whom they please, when they please, for as long as they please.
    It’s company policy.

    They DID get AG for nothing. But, yeah, you're right about the radio - the only one on the team the fan base likes is Pedroia. Wait until the isolated Ellsbury walks. Good point on Puljos.

    Gonzalez would have been traded elsewhere. Other teams called about him.

    Interesting... although it sounds like AA is talking about jobs that are promotions, and Farrell would be a lateral move. Guess we'll see what happens.

    "If you have that philosophy, in the long run it will serve your organization well, you’ll continue to attract outstanding employees because they know they have the freedom, they have upwards mobility, they’re never going to be held down," says Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "Selfishly I don’t want any of our guys to leave, but at the same time I hope all of our employees have opportunities to better themselves, whether it’s responsibilities, financial, whatever it might be."
