10/4 Cubs promote Rehman

The Cubs promoted Shiraz Rehman to assistant general manager, reporting to general manager Jed Hoyer, on Thursday. The team now will have two assistant GMs in Rehman and Randy Bush, who will continue to serve in the role he has held since December 2006. Rehman, 34, joined the Cubs in November as assistant to the general manager after six seasons with the Diamondbacks, where he was director of player personnel. He also held the titles of director of baseball operations (2009-10) and manager of baseball operations (2007-08) after joining the D-backs as a baseball operations assistant in December 2005.



They would make a good team. Makes sense. For some reason I would think Stony wouldn’t mind a change of scenery away from the brutally juvenile Hawk….He gone!?!?!???

A little harsh on Theo Mamma, after all he’s only been on the job a year and had a considerable lack of talent from the last GM. He did fire Hendry’s guy Quade who was unbearable.

I have no reason not to trust you Mamma however I still believe that THIS organization (not boston) is soooooo deep in a sad roster set in place by the previous, overmatched GM that Theo (even if as arrogant as you claim) should be given some space and time to put in motion what he claims he can do. Besides, maybe a smartGM that is ARROGANT is better than an inept GM that is CUDDLY. I for one am going to kick back and enjoy Theo’s “first” offseason. I don’t count last winter as it wasn’t his own team yet….NOW, it will get that much more interesting. It sounds like you have some inside dope? I believe you, just holding on to the benefit of the doubt for at least another couple of years.

Sorry Mamma, not buying the comparison to the WhiteSox, there are far ahead of the Cubs as far as the ML roster. But I do agree about Williams and Cooper they certainly remain competitve year after year and are considered legit playoff contenders. I think Ryno might have performed as admirably as Ventura…but…oops!

Also, why not pull for the Braves…and Reed Johnson????
