    No move at trading deadline for Cubs?

    General manager Jim Hendry hinted on Monday the Cubs may not do much at the trading deadline, whether the Ricketts family is officially in control of the team or not.

    "I've always said I'll wait until the owner is in place to talk about what he may or may not want to do," Hendry said. "At the same time, look at our roster today -- we have a pretty good team. If our guys all play like we're capable of, most of them, you don't have to do a whole lot of things. There aren't a whole lot of places to fit somebody in if we perform the way we're supposed to."

    The Cubs have a payroll of just less than $140 million and could use some bullpen help, particularly a left-hander. Hendry hasn't spoken to Ricketts about payroll, and while manager Lou Piniella said he has heard Tom Ricketts is a "fine gentleman and will be a really nice owner," he has yet to meet his potential new boss.

    How many times have the Cubs preformed like they were suppose to?
