Default Cubbies Continue A Trend, Out With Old, In With Young Guys...

If you have grey hair and still work for the Cubbies front office, your days are numbered.

Cubs name 25 year old Scott Harris director of baseball operations, after having dumped 30 year veteran Scott Nelson.

Not all that shocking considering the results their front office has achieved for the past 65 years.
