From the Chicago Tribune: “After Pierre’s introductory news conference Wednesday at Wrigley Field, general manager Jim Hendry disclosed he would offer Patterson arbitration next week and might give him the right-field job in 2006.”

Mastrick’s take: Hold the presses, Jim Hendry is a complete and total idiot and a buffoon! If this happens Hendry’s contract status should be tied directly to Patterson’s performance – if Patterson belly-flops again I hope to see this sorry excuse for a GM out of Chicago before he sets us back another hundred years.
