The Cubs front office has been almost totally made over, with the notable exceptions of Oneri Fleita and Tim Wilken. There has been a lot of hype about how the new group of Theo Epstein, Jed Hoyer and Jason McLeod will be doing things differently and building up the farm system, but how will they actually change the draft strategy for the Cubs?
I'm curious what the Minorleagueball community expects will change in Chicago on draft day, now that McLeod is there. What type of players will be targeted? Will we see more high school pitchers taken early? Will there continue to be a big emphasis on "up-the-middle" type players like under Hendry/Wilken, or will we see more corner OF/1B slugger types selected?
I'm just curious on what a McLeod/Epstein type player is vs. a Hendry/Wilken player. Thanks for any insight.
