Here’s how times have changed: There was an announcement made prior to the media luncheon with Major League managers at the Winter Meetings that reporters were not to tweet or blog during the sessions. In essence, the lunch was off the record. Cubs GM Jim Hendry was asked if he uses Twitter.
“I don’t think I can spell ‘tweet,'” Hendry said. “Chuck [Wasserstrom] is my tweeter.”
Wasserstrom is the Cubs’ manager of baseball information.
