Cubs To Retain GM Jim Hendry: MLB Rumors - MLBTradeRumors.comThe Cubs will hold onto general manager Jim Hendry, barring a change of thinking among the the team's owners, the Ricketts family, according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today (via Twitter).
There has been plenty of speculation over the course of this season, another disappointing one for the North Siders, that this could be Hendry's last year at the helm, although it has been reported previously on several occasions that the Ricketts and Hendry have a strong relationship. Tom Ricketts, chairman and one of the owners of the Cubs, gave Hendry a vote of confidence last season.
Hendry became the GM of the Cubs in 2002, succeeding Andy MacPhail. The Cubs have reached the postseason three times under his guidance.
