The Chicago Cubs have been cleaning house under new president of baseball operations Theo Epstein, a process that's gone on essentially since the beginning of his tenure. On Wednesday, the Cubs let go six scouts, some pro and some amateur, as ESPN's Keith Law reports.
These departures are just the latest for Chicago's front office, which has undergone absolutely massive changes over the past year. In August of last year, the Cubs fired GM Jim Hendry and brought in Epstein to helm the club's overhauled management team.
Epstein has already brought in numerous guys of his own, including GM Jed Hoyer, vice president of scouting and player development Jason McLeod and manager Dale Sveum. He's also kept some of Hendry's guys, including special assistant Tim Wilken and assistant GM Randy Bush.
