    This World Series was good for the game. Congratulations actions to the Tribe for giving the much bigger market team a strong challenge. Congrats to the Cubs for building a deeply talented roster.

    Glad to hear cards have re recruited Bob Gebhard. He used to advise uncle Walt circa 2000 to 2004, before moving to Arizona. Must have quit the new Diamondbacks regime. Would have been Mo’s boss in Colorado before mo came to St. Louis. Good for mo to have another experienced perspective.

    I also like promoting Schildt and Marmol. The former might grow into becoming Mathemys successor. Smart guy with good attitudes. They can use more brain power on the coaching staff and fresh ideas. Ollie is a young guy, probably bilingual. He was a good base runner in his playing days, so can direct traffic.
    There will be cascading effects in the system. There will need to be new recruits as managers. There is always some change every year, but there will be a lot this year as mo and Randy work on rejuvenating scouting and the minors.

    • JumboShrimp says:

      Partly this about team loyalty to its employees. If Ollie and Schildt have been good employees, reward them. We invest in our people. George Kissel was a minor leaguer, but was still respected. Loyalty and respect matter to the fabric and morale of a team.

    It is surprising to me that they brought in an old cigar chomper like Gebhard. They prefer the video scouting types who have never seen an actual baseball player. I bet no one sits by him in the lunch room.

    • JumboShrimp says:

      Gebhardt ex GM types are very useful. He was a pitcher back in the day, so could have a good eye for pitching talent. He can look at the films and not need to travel a lot.
      Baseball decisions are stressful. It’s good for mo to have a sounding board of guys who have made many.

    Is anyone else interested to see what moves the Cubs make this winter?
