The Tribune reports this-
Hendry still is trying to find another free-agent starter, and trying to sign outfielder Cliff Floyd, the former Thornwood star he once recruited as baseball coach at Creighton. But McDonough will ask Hendry to curtail his duties a bit so he can be fully recovered by the start of spring training.
Im glad to see we are still after the chicago native!! One thing that worries me in this article is how everyone want Hendry to relax til spring training.. thats nuts and i doubt Jim does that.. i can see him taking some days off but not that long, you have to be on your game to get the players you want.. I want Jim to get better and the time off is needed, but not til sporing training.. I want Pac-man out there wheeling and dealing!!
In the Daily Herald they had some intresting thoughts.. They still say the cubs #1 project is to get Marquis to fill out the 5th spot in the rotation.. They also say they may entertain a trade for ex-cub Jon Lieber or Brad Penny, if the teams do in fact want to trade them.. I say Jim if i had to pick between those HMM! I think the cubs could put a very attractive package together for Penny.. Maybe a Jones package could do it.. They need a corner outfielder with power and he had a great year last year, not to mention that would give us a great rotation of
Yeah i like that!
