Hendry Gets Extensions

Cubs General Manager Jim Hendry received extensions today, in a move that drew mixed reviews. The fear among Cub fans is that Dusty Baker is next, now that Hendry has his extensions. "We were satisfied with what Jim has done since taking over in 2003," said President Andy McPhail, "but we felt he needed to spruce up his image a bit, so we decided to offer him extensions."
Hendry said he isn't planning on offering Baker extensions just yet. "Obviously, we've thought about it, but we want to take wait and see approach," said the GM, "obviously, we don't know, obviously, if it's a good idea at this point, obviously, obviously...."
"Dude, I had extensions before...big time," said Baker, "I don't know if I want to get extensions with the Cubs, I may be getting too old for that kind of thing man."
