This will not be like the last rebuild. Hoyer is no Epstein. Theo was able to attract quality players because of who he was and the confidence he projected. Hoyer does not have that charisma. He doesn't exude that enthusiasm. He cannot attract quality based on his personaility like Theo did. Hoyer will soon prove that he is a quality behind the scenes #2 person, not the type of leader an organization requires for greatness. The Cubs will likely be, at most, a .500 team for many years to come and Hoyer will eventually be let go. Case in point... great leaders do not gut their organizations and get little in return. Hoyer waited way too long to trade the "core." This purge will go down in history as a huge debacle. Furthermore, great leaders NEVER blame others for their failures. They take on the responsibility for all outcomes (even if they don't believe it).
