    I'm with you. The internet obsession, especially in these forums, with prospects is just downright annoying at times.

    Maybe never. I think that kid we hired to be in charge of the roster rules is supposed to be the Next Theo and he will take over.

    So Hoyer hasn't been behind anything so far? Or is he just way behind everything?

    There's no way to really know who exactly is doing what. It's just easier to say Epstein sometimes.

    TBH, I think it's a collaborative effort in terms of generating ideas between Epstien and Hoyer, even though Epstien gets the final say.

    *This* is the Theo Epstein I envisioned when he was hired. Good to have him aboard.
    You have been very impatient about it.

    Time matters. They still screwed up their first year and that hasn't changed by doing a decent job so far in their second.

    Epstein is known for having a very collaborative approach and trying to get as many qualified opinions as possible on everything. I don't think you can say any one person is behind any single move unless you have a bug in all of their offices.

    According to the Cubs, the signing of Edwin Jackson is official. A press conference is scheduled for 3:00pm CT.

    ESPN:

    Jackson and the Cubs agreed to a four-year, $52 million contract. The deal includes an $8 million signing bonus with annual salaries of $11 million per year, according to a Cubs source.

    I think you could say that one guy could be behind a particular idea such as pushing hard to trade for a player or to draft a player but it seems to be a mostly collaborative approach.

    Here's a live feed for the Jackson presser.

    Camera is currently zoomed out. Looks like they're hosting it inside the clubhouse.

    Hoyer just sat down.
