Mike Chernoff’s wife Sarah Chernoff does not live with him in New Jersey. They did not raise their sons there. The reason I say this is because Wikipedia would have you believe they still live there. Why live in New Jersey when you’re the general manager of the Cleveland Indians? Does Wikipedia think maybe Sarah and the kids live in hotels permanently during the season? It’s not unheard of. General managing a baseball team is a brutally time-consuming job. However, I still recommend living in or around Cleveland if you are the general manager of the Indians. Your wife and kids want to see you at least a little. So now you know my stance on where the Chernoffs must call home!
In fact, they likely did move to Cleveland some time ago, but Mike’s Wikipedia page has weird information. Honestly, I think it’s incredible this guy achieved general manager status at the age of thirty-four. That’s not easy to do. David Stearns is the youngest general manager in the leauge. So I digress. Mike Chernoff’s wife Sarah did not find a suitable Cleveland synagogue before an article in Cleveland Jewish News came out about her husband’s promotion. The article also mentioned they moved to Beachwood, Ohio. So there’s one credible source about their residence. They likely moved to Cleveland years ago and his information was never updated.
I’m curious what Mike and Sarah think of Beachwood. It’s a small town about fifteen miles outside Cleveland. Sarah is going to every home game for the World Series. Beachwood has a median family income of over $86,000. That’s pretty solid for an Ohio town. It sounds like exactly the kind of place you want to move if you’re the GM of a professional baseball team. Mike Chernoff’s wife is just happy her husband didn’t get the job in New York. His father is the Vice President of WFAN. Papa Chernoff’s job is literally criticizing baseball general managers! In an interview, he said he was very happy his son didn’t get hired locally. I understand why because nobody likes conflicts of interest.
