    Re: Fire Lou and Hendry

    Lou I think gets a few more years. Hendry has run his course and needs to be replaced.

    Lou is done after this season. He may 'retire' but he will be done. Sandberg is going to be given the job about a year earlier then Cubs management thought. Of course that could all be different now with new owners, they may want a whole new direction.

    I have been calling for Hendry's head since 2004.

    I don't think either get fired, but would not be surprised to see both go after this season. Lou to retirement. Jim deserves to find a way out with dignity. Has made some bad decisions, but is a good guy.

    The next manager should be Bob Brenly or Joe Girardi. I can't see Sandberg being ready.

    Re: Fire Lou and Hendry

    Hendry needs to go. He hasn't made a successful move since the Ramirez trade. Byrd was a pretty good one too. But he has had numerous flops and given big time contracts to aging pitchers who aren't giving the value back for the $$$$ paycheck

    Re: Fire Lou and Hendry

    Fire Lou and not Jim...and actually the only reason I say don't fire Hendry is because I met him this week and he has a fire that I wish all the players had.

    I'm going to go ahead and bet there's roughly 0% chance of this happening.

    Its not Lou's or Hendry's fault that Lee and Ramirez are having their worst years of their careers.

    Re: Fire Lou and Hendry

    Ryne Sandberg was my hero growing up. Personally, I don't think he's ready and would like to see Brenly come out of the box and take care of business for 2-3 years while Sandberg can get some more experience in DM or as an asst. in Chicago.

    Re: Fire Lou and Hendry

    Personally I would say keep them both, because I love seeing this. Without any bias though, I would have to say get rid of them both. They had a nice little run but it isn't working and it's not getting better. Time to cut them both loose and blow the thing up and start over. As much as it pains me to say this, baseball is better when the cubs are at least competing.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see him be the bench coach next year.

    To me that sounds like a very good option.

    Re: Fire Lou and Hendry

    Why would Brenly take the job knowing they are grooming his replacement?
