Where is Dempster, Davis, Grace, Dawson? I would even take Shawon Dunston at this point. This is not a very impressive lineup of past players. Steve Trout? Dave Otto? Doug Glanville? Seriously?

Jim Hendry dunk tank anyone? That would increase attendance.

Do the cubs invite grace, Dawson, dunston guys from that era to the cubs convention? Those are the guys along with some that attend that should be respected and honored by the organization. The rickets and Epstein and crew need to mend whatever broken bridges that has let these guys feel more comfortable within other organizations other than the one that adores them and holds them close to the heart regardless of where they are from and where they live now the cubs fans embrace these guys more than anyone at any place on this planet.
