The Chicago Cubs, who hold the second worst record in the National League, have fired General Manager Jim Hendry.

Hendry served in the capacity for nine years.  The Cubs won division titles in 2003, 2007 and 2008.  The Cubs came within five outs of the World Series in 2003.

Hendry was actually told of the firing nearly a month ago.  He stayed on through the trading deadline on July 31 and the deadline for signing draft picks on August 16.

Hendry has ties to Lafayette.  His brother, Dr. John Hendry, is a local dentist.

Randy Bush, the assistant GM and the former head baseball coach at the University of New Orleans, has been named interim GM.  The Cubs are expected to look outside the organization for a permanent replacement.
