As you no doubt know by now from various tweets, Cubs GM Jim Hendry has been fired after nine years on the job. Assistant GM Randy Bush takes over on an interim basis.

I am writing this from my phone at Wrigley, so I'll keep this brief, let you all talk and post more after the game.

The simple truth is, it was and is time for a new direction. I'm glad Tom Ricketts is taking that new direction.

Have at it. More from me later.
