Jed Hoyer had his annual end-of-season press conference Monday morning. Al reported on it, and certainly others will have their interpretations. We’ll cover those here, and add whatever is out there floating around the Cubbieverse. The entire speech is below.

* means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome). {$} means paywall. {$} means limited views. Italics are often used on this page as sarcasm font. The powers that be have enabled sarcasm font in the comments.
