We’ve always gotten along," Hendry said. "Great, great player. I admire the heck out of him.”

I don’t wish death on anyone but I surely hope this is a “die” year for Cubs GM Jim Hendry.

You sure about that? They might get someone better.

Why in the world is Jim Hendry and Albert having a conversation even newsworthy? I’m sure it’s not the last…but really?

Jose Arredondo was just plain filthy in 2008… It’s sad to see somebody with stuff like get injured so early into his MLB career, he is doing pretty well in AAA with the Reds and it would be nice he if could contribute at some point this season.

Not a good idea Jim Hendry. Even if it was nothing, it will get people whispering.

If Arredondo is made available by the Reds, I’m sure they’ll get some great offers for him. He’s got loads of potential if he could only stay healthy.

I swear, its not obvious at all this site is run by Cub fans…every single week, “Pujols takes a crap that looks like a Cubs contract!” “Mickey Mantle to come back from the dead, rumors of Cub signature!” So-and-so, perfect fit for the Cubs!

Nothing wrong with being optimistic, but really.
