1060West is a Cubs blog not afraid to tell it like it is. In this post, they compare Jim Hendry’s situation right now to Mark Shapiro’s: two teams that were expected to compete but now have no chance. Both clubs have plenty of veterans, and Shapiro has done a good job getting young players in return so far. Hendry, on the other hand, has two mediocre A-ball pitchers to his credit.
Is there any good reason for the Cubs to hang on to Jones, Ramirez, Maddux, Eyre, Howry, Barrett, Dempster, and the rest?
