This needed a second part, and I'd look for another picture of Hendry, but couldn't find one, this will do.
So if Hendry has failed, why keep bringing him back? Why is the Ricketts family keeping him?
Like I said earlier, what good is reloading if the trigger is broken? All you'll have is a loaded gun that can't shoot.
Now before I come to a conclusion, let me set something up. In Great Britain they show PSA's, but they're called Public Information Films. Unlike in the United States where they're kind of cute and targeted towards children and it tells them to say no to drugs or to not start smoking, Britain's Public Information Films tend to either be extremely condescending (like this one telling you how to vote, which would be fine in a country where they're having their first free elections, except this is from 1970 and England wasn't exactly new at the free election thing), darkly funny (like this Clockwork Orange-inspired PIF), or just plain macabre (this recent one showing the results of texting while driving.)
Well not to compare this current Cubs season to people who don't know how to vote, kids who might or might not be doing the right thing, or texting while driving (don't text while driving people), but this Cubs situation seems to play out like a public information film.
Everything looks ok, and everything seems to be going well (2007, 2008) but then one little act (signing Milton Bradley over Adam Dunn) leads to outright disaster (2010) filled with blood and carnage, followed by a scary British Accented voice telling you a catchphrase.
Well here's our Cubs Public Information Film catchphrase that goes along with my trigger theory with Hendry: Fix the Trigger, Fire Hendry (it sounds so much better when you imagine Alan Ruckman or the late Alec Guiness saying it.)
