Cubs GM Jim Hendry Believes they’re still in it


“It could be a lot worse. Like I said, if you could just reel off a few good weeks, you could find yourself in the middle of July under five games behind and then it’s back to ‘game on’ again,” Chicago Cubs General Manager Jim Hendry told the media before Wednesday night’s 6-2 win over the visiting Oakland Athletics.

“It’s just time to do it. We need a couple good weeks, and need to maintain some consistency,” Hendry later added. The Cubs are 8 games under .500 and 7.5 games out of first place in the NL Central, and most baseball gurus believe they’ll enter selling mode quite soon; if they haven’t already.
