|Cubs GM Says Piniella's Job is Safe
|CHICAGO (AP) -- Despite the Chicago Cubs' disappointing start, GM Jim Hendry says he's "never given any thought" about replacing manager Lou Piniella.
"I'm absolutely, completely confident in Lou Piniella," Hendry said before Monday night's game against Colorado. "I have complete faith in the coaching staff, also. No intention of making any changes at all."
Chicago reporters asked Hendry about Piniella's job status because some national media have begun speculating that the manager could be in trouble if the Cubs don't improve markedly.
