COLUMNIST: DID CUBS LET WRONG GUY GO? In Chicago, Phil Rogers writes, "Those are the guys who had to go? Come on, Tom Ricketts, you're smarter than this." You have been "speaking on a daily basis with the guy who has done more to hurt your organization than anybody." Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney "in more than a decade hasn't figured out a way to make the improvements that will unleash Wrigley's potential." Sullivan: "Someday I might meet someone who can explain how he's an asset to the organization." Everyone in baseball "knew a shake-up was coming at some point, as Epstein essentially retained Hendry's staff when he took over." The questions "left now are how widespread will the changes be an how many more staffers will Epstein add from Yawkey Way?" (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 8/16).
