I was WRONG about Ricketts firing Jim Hendry!!!!!!!


Here are my thoughts and observations.

I have to admit my mistakes, and I was happy to have made one here.

So where do we go from here?

Ricketts has now proven a few things.....
I may not like how slow he moves but he did fire the GM and he said it will not be Bush and will hire outside the Cubs organization, which is good.
He said Kenny will only be on the business side and the new GM would answer directly to him. No reason at all to go through Kenny. This is also good.

Next on the ageda would obviously be to get the new GM.
I like Cashman, But this Friedman guy also sounds good.

Whoever it is hopefully will have the ability to see that a major change is needed in the manager and coaching staff.
Let us hope the right moves are made.

Another huge decision will be what to do about the players like Zambrano and Soriano with huge contracts but are not doing much for the team. Will the Cubs be able to unload them? Will they eat the contracts?

It seems that Ricketts may finally have a had enough of the losing and having his team look unprepared, lazy, and just plain bad. So hopefully he is ready to hire the best person possible for all postions.

It has been a painful last 2 years to be a Cub fan. It has gotten to the point where I was rooting for the team to lose to force Ricketts into making decisions. It will be nice to be able to root for the Cubs again without having to worry about every win only going toward earning us another year of the same thing.

So to recap. I am fine with admitting I was wrong. Do I have complete confidence that Rickets will hire the right people to GM and manage the Cubs? Not yet. But I hope to be wrong again!
