Hendry look at the History

 With talks of a blockbuster Prior-Tejada-Zito trade. Jim Hendry must take a step back and think. Is this a good move. Will our pitching slip? Our hitting/scoring really improve? The answer is in the Cubs' history.
  A history full of missed chances and mistakes. You can remember the obvious trades, at the forefront of frustration. The obvious decisions(not letting the goat in), not going aggressivly after free agents. And the obvious pure misjudgement of talent. Some mistakes are to be forgiven, mistakes make baseball interesting, mistakes make baseball, baseball.
 After looking back the answer is clear. The Prior, Tejada, and possibly Zito trade is a good move. The cubs have been weakened by not being agressive in the off-season, and not being able to produce runs without the long ball. Getting Tejada helps fill both of those problems and while losing Prior may hurt. It's the best choice.

Otherwise, whose new jersey will people have to buy?
