Red Sox lose scouting director McLeod to Padres

Dec 2, 2009, 7:26 PM EDT

Former Red Sox assistant GM and current Padres GM Jed Hoyer has recruited BoSox scouting director Jason McLeod to follow him to San Diego, it was confirmed by the North County Times on Wednesday.
McLeod used to work for the Padres, so it was a natural fit, at least now that owner John Moores is on the way out. McLeod is the ex-husband of Moores’ daughter, Jennifer. He’ll be named an assistant GM, and he’s expected to take over duties that had belonged to the recently dismissed Grady Fuson.
It’s a big loss for the Red Sox. McLeod was a leading figure in the drafts that produced Dustin Pedroia, Jacoby Ellsbury and Clay Buchholz. Boston, though, could have been hit harder. Hoyer was turned down last month when he attempted to bring in Red Sox director of player development Mike Hazen.

    Ha, this sounds like a soap opera.

    Except it was worse, since that was the sort of malarkey that gutted SD last year.
    Seems like a solid move by Hoyer, and he has taken the first step in his plan.

    You are right, people should listen to what you are saying because are absolutely right. :-D
