>Chicago Cubs’ GM Jim Hendry was given the dreaded ‘vote of confidence’ by owner Tom Ricketts this week.  Ricketts was quoted as saying, “The fact is right now, Jim is our general manager, I support him, I think he does a great job, and after that we’ll just take it one day at a time.”

After reading the article, Hendry was quoted as saying, “Crap.  All righty, well, I guess I start looking into some other organizations.  Rumor has it that Arizona might still be open at the end of the season.”
