While doing my daily internet browsing, I came across this link via MLB Trade Rumors. With Hendry on the hotseat and with the Ricketts family in their first year of ownership, they have clearly stated that everyone will be under review after the year. As an optimistic Cubs fan, I do see the possiblility of success this season. But what is defined as success to save Jim's job? A playoff appearance? No, been there. A WS appearance? Maybe. WS Championship? Most likely.
Would Towers be a good fit here? I think so, as I cannot think of anybody else as experienced who may be available after the year. How about Lou himself? Probably not. Or even an unproven commodity in Greg Maddux? Maybe down the road. Discuss.
Apologies if this has been discussed previously as I have searched for any similar fan posts.
