Jim Hendry and Lou Piniella Relationship

When Lou Piniella came to the Chicago Cubs a few years ago he had an big impact on the club. This wasn't because of his managing moves, but how he affected the whole organization and Jim Hendry. He was having Hendry call up youngsters and make roster moves we never saw in the past. Lou Piniella is a very knowledgeable baseball man and was able to help Jim Hendry sculpt the team. With Lou Piniella pretty much running the organization we knew it was in good hands. A few weeks ago we saw Gerald Perry fired and he was one of Lou's guys he brought in. Lou Piniella never didn't say much about the move, except that it was an organizational move and he obviously was not in favor of it. Well now it is coming out that the relationship of Jim Hendry and Lou Piniella isn't what it used to be. There is a great article in the Chicago Sun Times by Chris De Luca which can be found at http://www.suntimes.com/sports/deluca/1649094,CST-SPT-deluca02.article which talks about the relationship between Jim Hendry and Lou Piniella. I think it is a bad thing that Lou Piniella does not have as much influence on Jim Hendry as he used to. What do you think?
