How about Randy Bush/Billy Williams for the balance of '11?

It's become glaringly obvious that both Jim Hendry and Mike Quade will be fired at the conclusion of the season. If that decision has already been made, as surely it must have been, then why have two lame ducks making the calls for the rest of the season? Why not install Randy Bush as interim GM, and Billy Williams as interim manager, with the obvious understanding that both would not be considered for the jobs in '12. Bush may be able to make some moves which would position him for a job with another franchise, and letting Billy manage for the balance of the year would reward him for his years of service to the Cubs--also would be in keeping with the "senior manager" trend. I'd rather have Billy than Pat Listach. It also wouldn't be fair to Ryne Sandberg to have to inherit this train wreck of a team. I think it would be better to have interim leadership rather than lame duck leadership.
