Well, Cubs fans have seen this one coming all season. It’s been a rough season and changes have to be made. in the wake of Hendry’s release, Tyler Colvin’s walk-off single in the 10th inning propelled the Cubs to an important win over the Cardinals. Not that I’m dreaming of a miraculous playoff this year but beating their rivals and really putting an end to Jim Hendry’s career with the Cubs is somewhat poetic.
it’s a new beginning for the Cubs. Jim Hendry had 9 tumultuous years with the organization and he made some good moves and some not so good moves. I’ve been saying all season long that with the highest pay roll this side of Manhattan and not being able to secure a World Series spot; there’s bound to be some changes.
Nobody can blame it on curses, Black Cats, winds blowing in or blowing out–Hell, being the “lovable losers” will only draw fans in for so long(Yesterday was their biggest attendence since 1978-was it for Hendry or the Cards?)The question at the end of the day is, Can you win any ball games?
Jim Hendry’s record with the Cubs was 749-748. That’s an ok record if it were some other team, but the Cubs haven’t won a World Series in 103 years so that record should have been better.
Next year starts today. No more bullshit(yes, that’s what it is). The Cubs will make the post season next year, Albert Pujols will lead the team in HR’s and Sandberg will be back.
