8/22 Scouts dismissed
The Cubs’ front office makeover continued on Wednesday. The team dismissed six of their scouts, including pro scouts Joe Housey, Richie Zisk, Tom Bourque and Tom Shafer, and amateur scouts Charlie Aliano and Rick Schroeder. Aliano was a regional crosschecker and Schroeder handled some of the Midwest. Last week, the Cubs dismissed farm director Oneri Fleita.
