Cubs Gm Jim Hendry has been saying all week that the Cubs were not going to be active at the deadline. He likes his team and its chemistry. However, he did speak out to make it clear that Felix Pie was never available in trade. While doing so, he left the door open today in case someone wants to drop a left-handed bat in his lap. "Things could change today. Some of the best deals we've ever made, even smaller deals we made after the deadline-that year we got Doug Glanville and Randall Simon(2003)-they weren't even on the radar screen the night before." He also said there were several prospects besides Pie who he considered untouchable. That doesn't leave him with much trade bait.
