It's time to win--resonate with anyone?

This was the phrase marketing man McDonough used and repeated a couple times in today's Wrigley news conference. Of course it is, after 98 years of mostly second-division teams.

When Mark Grace left the Cubs for the D-backs these were his exact words
It's time to win--

I think, because of this jab and some other comments that I'm not entirely sure of, he left MacPhail and the Cubs on a sour note. It's been written he'd never be embraced as ex-Cub as long as MacPhail was around.

Now McDonough enters this new position, whether intentionally or not, invoking "Gracie.''

Could he be a future Cub broadcaster?? Sure be better than "Ronnie.''
