Matt Arnold becoming the next GM seems like a move that’s been signaled for a while now.

So appears to be a very similar situation to what the Cubs did a few years ago with Theo and Jed Hoyer. I would imagine that Stearns and Arnold would still work in tandem on player acquisitions, with Stearns taking on more responsibility on the business side.

I think you have that backwards. With most President/GM tandems the GM is the one worrying about day to day business stuff, thus allowing the top guy to just focus on baseball operations.

A big part of it is to simply give them both a promotion to help keep them around.

I wonder what this means for Rick Schlesinger.

Didn't Stearns already get promoted to President of Baseball Operations as a result of rebuffing the Giants approach for him? Of course he could always be promoted again, but there would be no need to do so simply to be able to turn down the Mets approach.

He is currently the General Manager and President of Baseball Operations.

I was hearing rumors that he was going to the Mets so Attanasio must be giving him a raise to stay. Always thought the one job he would leave for is his childhood team but ownership must have stepped up.

Well Stearns can't just get up and leave...he is under contract. He got extended before 2019 and I am guessing said contract was probably at least 3 years and likely didn't include 2019 as one of the years. He wasn't going anywhere even before this promotion.

Yes he is under contract but if he really wanted to go home its possible that Attanasio would let him. With a big money owner and it being his favorite team growing up its easy to see the appeal but it looks like ownership stepped up.

I thought the new Mets owner had indicated he was bringing back Sandy Alderson as GM once the sale was completed?

Then it's probably not much of a rumor. Unless living in New York City is what is most important, it would be a step backwards to go from calling all the shots in Milwaukee, to being the second in command for the Mets.

Schlesinger is approaching 60. He may not want to do this a whole lot longer.

Seems an odd time to promote your two highest paid baseball execs after the worst offseason in Stearns tenure and the loss of revenues incurred this year. He should be lucky to still have a job.

Sorry John, this is one of the worst hot takes in the nearly 20-year history of the message board.

Attanasio cutting the opening day payroll by 20 million dollars didn't help matters.

The hyperbole is running extra hot today it seems. Evidently a few posters are grouchy after staying up till 12:30 last night.

At first I thought the subject line said "Cubs President" and I almost raged.
