Cubs GM getting irked by Denver media

I think according to the Daily Southtown Jim Hendry is particularly upset by the Post constantly spilling Preston Wilson rumors when the deal isn't as close as the paper makes it out to be. I still feel that Preston's going to be gone soon, but really, I agree with Hendry that the Post's daily stream of gossip has turned me off of its coverage as well. I'd rather get one shred of detail about negotiations with unsigned draft pick Kyle Hancock than every minutae of catty gossip regarding who we're going to deal. The paper did this before with the Joe Kennedy to Oakland rumors and if Hendry's reaction is any clue I'm wondering if the media is actually hurting the Rox bargaining position.

Well, let Troy and the gang begin their hunt for rumors anew as the Yankees have popped up as a more distinct possibility.
