In AUG, the Chicago Cubs ownership removed their general manager – the BIG question remained – do you choose an up-and-coming GM’s (Here’s the list) or established veteran front office executive? (IE: Brian Cashman, Theo Epstein, Billy Beane) What about Kim Ng (graduate of University of Chicago), who’s eventually destined to break the gender barrier. Whoever receives the opportunity will immediately have to evaluate the current talent and decide how to salvage Victor Zambrano’s remaining $$$ on his contract. Do you offer Albert Pujols a massive 10YR / $300MIL free agent contract at the age of 31? Possibly the greatest task in American sports today – would be to architect the Chicago Cubs to a World Series after 102 years.
Is Steve Bartman available?
