Has Hendry Lost His Mind?

Posted on 02 January 2009 by Lou

As I wrote in my previous post on Wednesday, I wasn’t too pleased with Cubs GM Jim Hendry when he traded Mark DeRosa to the Cleveland Indians right before the end of the year. Unless the acquisition of 3 pitching prospects from the Indians results in the acquisition of Jake Peavy from the San Diego Padres, I think it will go down as one of the worst moves of his tenure as GM of the Cubs.

My initial reservations have even been legitimized by one of the best MLB baseball writers in the country – Buster Olney of Check out what Buster has to say here.

Jim, here’s hoping that your moves pay off with a World Series title in 2009. If the Cubs take a step back and don’t make the playoffs for a 3rd straight season in 2009, you could be looking for a new city to call your home…
