Hendry also has set his sights on outfielder Cliff Floyd, 33, for left-handed help off the bench. Floyd, a Chicago native who starred at Thornwood High School in South Holland, was limited to 97 games for the New York Mets last season because of a sprained left ankle and Achilles tendinitis. Floyd made $6.75 million last season, hitting .244 with 11 home runs and 44 RBI for the NL East champion Mets. He has been a longtime favorite of Hendry's.


Hendry has known Floyd since he tried to recruit him to play baseball at Creighton when Hendry coached there. Floyd bypassed college as a first-round draft pick of the Montreal Expos in 1991.


Mets general manager Omar Minaya last week offered Floyd a contract to return, but the Mets' reported interest in signing free agent Moises Alou could influence Floyd's decision.

Look for the Cubs to sign him to a 3/$20 deal. Everyone else is striking it rich with the stacks of money Hendry is haphazardly throwing around....why shouldn't Cliff get a piece of that pie?

Makes since. The Cubs need some simulated offensive production to go with their simulated pitching staff.

I know one of Floyd's best friends since highschool who said that Cliff will not play in Chicago or St. Louis because he has too many family members in each city...

They really need to go after some pitching right now. Their best pitcher they've got so far this off-season is Neal Cotts and let's be honest if they move him to the starting rotation they are not helping their chances.
