quote:Originally posted by Ryan's Privates: He also made reference to the fact that the Chicago Cubs' curse was finally broken. He is one of several fromer Cubs on the Arizona roster.
Ironically, this is the first year since the 1960 Pirates defeated the New York Yankees that the Ex-Cub Factor was overcome. Perhaps there is some strange synergy when the Yankees are the opposing team that negates the critical mass of three ex-Cubs infecting a Series team.

Joe Garagiola Sr. asked Grace how it felt changing from being old to being a crafty veteran. There have been lots of jokes about the d-backs age. When they won the NLCS against Atlanta, Mike Morgan dropped f-bombs on live tv, referring to himself and Greg Swindell as a bunch of old f**kers. They had brought some Geritol to the bullpen, in reference to some sportscaster making remarks about their age.
The best quote from Grace though, was when he told the audience that he wasn't good enough to play 1st base for the Cubs, but was sure good enough to play for the world champions.
