    Re: Hendry out as Cubs GM

    It's official. Today is Hendry's last day as Cubs GM. Confirmed by Bruce Miles, Carrie Muskat, David Kaplan, etc.

    Assistant GM Randy Bush is the interim GM.

    Quade is next I hope. Worst gameday manager I've seen in a very long time.

    agree. who do you bring in? not sure you want Sandberg to take over the team until Soriano and Z's contracts are gone.

    Wow, that didn't last long! Should dig up the old thread where Quade was hired for comparison.

    Re: Hendry out as Cubs GM

    I'm not passing a ton of blame on Quade, the players themselves have not been very clutch in key situations this season (such as hitting with runners in scoring position) and the rotation has been a mess. Just ask Matt Garza who seems to pitch some great games then gets no run support. Quade has had his fair share of mistakes such as pitching to Pujols again a day after he just won the game but let's face it even with Sandberg at the helm this roster of players absolutely sucks and has no team chemistry or leaders (other than Dempster maybe.) That is why Hendry was fired because he put this disaster together over the years.


    Go Cubs Go!

    Re: Hendry out as Cubs GM

    Quade isn't the problem here. This was a terrible team regardless of the manager.

    Hendry got notice he was going to get fired on July 22nd. He stayed on until now to help the Cubs get their draft picks signed.
