View Full Version : The Prior Cover-Up and Other Laughs on the North Side

Former Assistant Trainer Sandy Krum is suing the Cubs for wrongful termination, saying he got pushed out for telling management that the head trainer was operating without a license.

Besides all of that, he's also coming out with some fun little tidbits about our friends to the North, mainly about how Hendry and friends covered up Prior's elbow problems by blaming it on an ankle injury.


From the Tribune:

In an interview Monday with WFLD-Ch. 32, Krum was asked whose decision it was "to lie to the media."

Krum replied: "Jim Hendry. Two trainers were called into a meeting, and [Hendry] said, 'This is what we're going with.'"

Here's a fun dig at Dusty:

Krum also blamed manager Dusty Baker for the tension between the players and former announcer Steve Stone, saying Baker "didn't have control of that clubhouse. How can you allow a player (Kent Mercker) to pick up the phone and call the press box during the middle of the game?"
