Goatriders of the Apocalypse

Jim Hendry will be back.

From Carrie Muskat at MLB.com:

"It's Jim's responsibility to go out and find a new manager," Ricketts told beat writers on Wednesday. "What he'll do is he'll create a short list and I'll meet with everyone on the short list."

So if Tom Ricketts is trusting Jim Hendry to pick the manager of the Cubs for 2011, I'm pretty certain he trusts Hendry to stay on with the team as GM for that year as well.

Seems clear to me. Thought you'd want to know.

As far as I'm concerned, I'll take Hendry if it means keeping Tim Wilken around. That man can evaluate young talent. Our farm system is thriving right now.

Plus, perhaps more importantly: who out there would do a better job?
