Cubs: McLeod, Epstein looking for game-changers

29

Not a ton of new info here, but a pretty interesting read that is mostly about McLeod. It also takes a look at how the Cubs are approaching preparations for the June draft. I took particular note of this (sorry, don't know how to do a block quote in this box, but it is, of course, from the linked article): "The Cubs recognize they need to take care of their scouts. McLeod e-mailed his staff last week to say that later this year scouts will be provided company cars, a common benefit in Boston and San Diego." This is yet another sign of how far this organization had to play catch-up to heavy hitters like...... San Diego..... when it comes to baseball infrastructure. Giving scouts video cameras to create a video library was also discussed. I hope many keep in mind all the extra infrastructure investments the Cubs are making (more front office personnel, more scouts, new tools & tech, etc.) when they consider how the Cubs aren't "spending any money".
