Theo Cleaning House in Chicago

14

The Schlubs have fired their Player Personnel Director, though they'd signed him to a 4-year extension prior to the season but before Theo was hired), and "The Cubs also eliminated two positions belonging to Baseball Information Manager Chuck Wasserstrom and Statisical Analysis Manager Ari Kaplan. Wasserstrom left after 25 years in the organization, while Kaplan was hired as a consultant." And "Epstein said more changes are in store. Some personnel have been informed of their fates. " I still think it's going to be a coupla more years until they're competitive enough for the Pirates to worry about - the Cubs are still hamstrung by Fonsi's contract, and Ricketts' pockets aren't as deep as his counterparts in NY, BOS or L.A.
