I hope they go and get Mark Grace to take his place.
I'm not sure if they'll be able to get Gracie to come in to replace Ronnie. He'd have to be able to break his contract with FSN Arizona and the Diamondbacks. Not saying it can't be done, but it'll be difficult.

I am thinking either it prolly go to either Dave Otto or Keith Moreland. I personally would rather have Dave, Keith got on my nerves when he filled on when Ron was out this year.

I work on call and had only been asleep a few hours when my wife called. She never calls to wake me unless it's something serious. I was instantly bummed and couldn't go back to sleep. Ron made it fun to listen to the Cubs games even if they were getting stomped. He will be missed greatly. I wonder what the Cubs will do to honor him this year.

I think the Cubs should have a No. 10 patch on the jerseys, like they had in 1998 the patch with Harry's face and the "Hey! Hey!" over it when Harry and Jack both passed.

I just received the January issue of Vineline in the mail today, and the whole issue is dedicated to Ronnie. There are a few stories on Santo from the editorial staff, many photos from Ron's career, a couple interviews from the past, and the last page is an illustration of Ron with his back to the infield, walking away.
