Well, it looks like the Seattle Mariners didn't get a chance to talk with Jim Hendry. I saw on ESPN news this morning that Jim Hendry and the Cubs agreed on a three year deal.
This, in my opinion, completes the "five year plan", the Cub's front office set a couple of years ago when they signed Derrek Lee. The only one I think has a contract that exceeds that is Soriano.
I like this deal. Not too long and not too short. Hendry is in his prime and teamed with Piniella, I think sky's the limit... unless the new owners disagree.
What do you guys think? Poll coming....
