(CBS) On Monday night, seemingly frustrated with his position in Triple-A, Cubs third baseman Ian Stewart let the twitterverse know exactly how he felt.
Stewart, who has been in Triple-A working to recover from a quad injury suffered in spring training, said the Cubs were letting him “rot” in Iowa and they “might as well release me.”
Today on The McNeil and Spiegel Show, Cubs general manager Jed Hoyer let Stewart know how the Cubs’ brass viewed his comments.
“I can tell you it was really unprofessional and there are going to be consequences,” Hoyer said. “That’s kind of the extent of what I’m going to say right now, but that’s the last thing in the world we want to be spending our time on.
“We spent our morning dealing with it. I can tell you of all the things that go on in this job, dealing with someone staying up late on Twitter and blasting the organization is about the last way in the world we want to spend our morning. It doesn’t exactly help the organization get better to spend the morning dealing with it.”
