08:01 AM ET 07.12 | The good news is often the bad news when it comes to a vote of confidence, and, on Sunday, Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts extended one to general manager Jim Hendry. "The fact is right now, Jim is our general manager, I support him, I think he does a great job, and after that we'll just take it one day at a time," Ricketts said. This is the Ricketts family's first season as the Cubs owners, having completed the purchase last October. ... "In the end, you put the guys on the field and in the right chairs and you support them and hope they do the best. That's all we can do at the moment."
