Chicago Tribune has an interview with Cubs GM Jim Hendry today in which Hendry refuses to lay blame on injuries or his manager. It's interesting to note (said just like Vin Scully) that twice Hendry refers to the Astros team 2 years ago as an example of how things can turn around. That team started 15-30 but went on to finish 92-70 and make the playoffs. And then last year they lost to the White Sox in the World Series.
It's interesting to note--as I pointed out yesterday (big yay)-- because the Astros in 2004 fired manager Jimy Williams and hired Phil Garner at the All-Star Break. Williams was at 44-44 when he was ousted. Similar to Baker, Williams had nothing but success prior to his hiring in Houston.
But Houston made the move. The Cubs haven't yet. So what happens if this huge slide continues through the upcoming White Sox series?
