The Cubs rebuilding process is going full steam ahead as Jim Hendry takes on the task of fixing what has been wrong with the team this year. Let's check on his progress so far.
Time: 4 days until non-waiver trade deadline.
Ted Lilly: Still a Cub (and pitching tonight in Houston).
Derrek Lee: Still a Cub (and apparently willing to excercise his no-trade rights to remain that way).
Ryan Theriot: Still a Cub (and reportedly having his stock rise amongst scouts that value bad defense, terrible baserunning, and weak bats).
Xavier Nady: Still a Cub. (Seriously, he is. Check the box scores. He can usually be found under GIDP.)
Carlos Zambrano: Still a Cub (and apologizing for his actions, but apparently he is doing it wrong).
Kosuke Fukudome: Still a Cub (and can usually be found coming into games only after Xavier Nady has been used).
Still a Cub (and will unsurprisingly pick up his player option to stay a Cub next year too).
The progress is impressive when measured on a geological timeline, but otherwise not so much.
