You ever see those contracts that he signed? He gave a bunch of players jackpots of money. Luckily, they found the Dodgers, who needed players and could easily take on those shite contracts. The guy is wayyyyyyyyyyyyy Overrated as a GM. He walked into a franchise on the verge of winning it all, and his pocket book reaped the rewards. Cubs will find out in the end, they bought into the hype, and will be put back, even more years when the next GM has to rebuild.
I know and all the did otherwise, was draft pedrioa, draft ellsbury, sign ortiz, trade for schilling and becket. He might be over rated but he's not the albatross you're trying to portray him as.

I'm guessing you're a cardinals fan, and i enjoy the banter, but you and I could do better than hendry (there is a reason he didn't get another job as GM), so if you redact this at least your points would remain coherent in that he did overpay for some players (guess the good news for the cubs is that we're not spending money right now. But if you think the screw the farm system, buy the over the hill players, never trade to make minor leauge gains in a lost season, refusing to believe you're out when everyoen else sees it, is better than whats going on now then its' clear you're not paying attention to minor league development, farm system strengths and all around savy business moves...you tell me what you think scott feldman is worth?
