    Hank has a problem with ex Cubs. that’s why Tuesday he really did say bye, bye to Sandberg, and that’s why he should be fired.

    I’d bring back Wood and make Cashner a starter.

    you need a stopper and he’ll be a good one someday if not 2011.

    I’d trade for a top flight SS prospect or bring up your best defensive SS and move Castro to 2B.

    Castro will be a star and could be good at SS or 2B if he can pick up the easy/routine grounders. in a WS you want sure hands at SS/2B.

    he could also be a gold glove in CF, he has speed, range, arm, plays hard, wouldn’t have to worry about ground balls.

      Who is Hank?

        I had to think about it for a minute, too, but it’s a nickname for Jim Hendry (apparently the D is silent).

    Ah. Then I guess I’m wondering

    a: what evidence we have that “Hank” doesn’t like ex-Cubs (someone should really tell Maddux that, by the way)

    b: With the myriad reasons why a rational person might argue that Hendry should be fired, why one would argue that “He doesn’t like ex-Cubs” is THE reason the Cubs should get rid of him.

      It’s just one more drop in the ocean.
