Jim Hendry The Trader

Jim Hendry’s peers selected him as the “Easiest GM to Make a Deal with” according to Buster Olney’s survey of baseball’s general managers.

Olney notes in his blog that Hendry is known for being direct, decisive, and accountable for returning phone calls.

The Cubs’ GM is certain to test his skill set this month with the Cubs floundering in fourth place in the NL Central.

Lee, Lilly, Fukudome, and perhaps Zambrano, will be sought after pieces…and Hendry’s ability, or inability, to swing the right deals will largely determine his future employment with the Cubs.

Here’s a history of Hendry’s trades with Chicago.

    Many Cub fans feel the same way.
    But I’m not so quick to pull the trigger on him.
    Either way, Hendry’s job has never been more on the line than now.
    We’ll see!
