Should Hendry be Allowed to Sell?

166

MLB Trade Rumors goes over the options if the Cubs become sellers. It's well researched and most of what has been mentioned in the article has also been mentioned in threads on this site. However it does ask the question: Should Hendry be in charge of dissolving the team this season, or should another GM step in? The Arizona Diamondbacks replaced their GM in the middle of the season last year and are currently at the top of the division. You can easily make the case that dissolving a team under a new GM gives the team a head start and removes the relationship factor between the GM and player. I think the relations factor is a big concern because Hendry's relationships with players may make him less likely to deal them. IMO, Hendry's best trait as a GM is his ability to get players in trades. He's had success with Aramis and D-Lee. However, he has failed miserably in shipping off players like Maddux and Lilly netting almost nothing in return. This situation falls in the latter and I personally believe he should not be allowed to sell off the team. My question to you is: "Should Hendry be allowed to sell off this team?"
