Jim Hendry fired

Bruce Levine is reporting the Cubs have fired Jim Hendry.

The Chicago Cubs relieved Jim Hendry of his duties as vice president and general manager on Friday, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Another positive step in the right direction. Mike Quade just lost his job, too, but he hasn’t been informed yet. No way a new GM keeps him around.

UPDATES: Randy Bush is the new GM, which I’m assuming is on an interim basis. 

Hendry admitted he was fired on July 22nd, but stuck around to see to it that the draft picks were signed. Had the authority to make trades, but felt the next GM should do that.
