The Cubs took 100+ years to win a title. But if you're a young kid these days, you see a team that had crappy management get taken over, go out and deliberately hire winners and build through brilliant strategy and use of cash. To a lot of fans, the Cubs are quickly becoming the model of how to do it right.
So if the Bungs end up like the Cubs, what we should expect is that at some point the Brown family's clutches will get loosened, maybe because they'll just want to cash out after Mike Brown and his brother both die. And at that point, maybe, just maybe, they'll end up in competent hands. Although if Katie is running the team with her husband, maybe expect to have to outlive them too. That actually seems like the best case scenario. Many of us might also be dead by then, though. Like a lot of Cubs fans died waiting for their title.
Mike Brown has already abused their hearts and raided their wallets. He has been a one-man plague of locusts -- Gregg Doyel
