7/26 Cubs Q: “Why not us?”

Cubs GM Jim Hendry and his staff stayed in Chicago to monitor moves heading into Sunday’s Trade Deadline. The Cubs began play Tuesday 12 games back in the National League Central. That doesn’t deter manager Mike Quade.

“Why not?” he said as the team began a 10-game trip against the Brewers, Cardinals and Pirates. “What if we win 10 out of 12 — who knows?

“It’s an interesting division,” Quade said. “What are there, 60 games left? Let’s go play ‘em and see. Daunting task, four clubs in front of you, not having played well, but why not?”

Does that mean Quade wants to the Cubs to be active and make some deals?

“That’s not my business,” he said. “Time will take care of all the prognostications,” Quade said. “I’m not a lunatic. There’s a lot of work to do ahead of us but we’re playing the right clubs and let’s see if we can’t put something together.”
