    Cubs owner gives Hendry vote of confidence

    Cubs owner Tom Ricketts told reporters in Anaheim that he has "the highest level of confidence" in his GM Jim Hendry, writes MLB.com's Carrie Muskat. However, Ricketts stopped sort of guaranteeing Hendry's job security:
    "The fact is right now, Jim is our general manager, I support him, I think he does a great job, and after that we'll just take it one day at a time," the chairman said.

    I wonder what happens at trade deadline and how much that holds on if Hendry comes back

    Hendry has pictures of somebody doing something illicit.... I'm convinced of it.

    Not a Cubs fan and I don't know much about there situation, but usually a "Vote of Confidence" is usually a "Kiss of Death".

    As Cubs fans, should Hendry get the boot?

    Hopefully it was the old ownership and it no longer has any clout.

    On a slightly unrelated note, Greg McDermott was given a vote of confidence after the 2009-10 season

    Re: Cubs owner gives Hendry vote of confidence

    Funny...I don't read that as a vote of confidence! "after that we will take it one-day-at-a-time" would not make me feel too confident in how the boss feels about me.

    Re: Cubs owner gives Hendry vote of confidence

    Since "vote of confidence" never really means that, why is taking over for Jim?
