BUZZ! Wrong answer!
2003-2004 was the first time the Cubs have completed back-to-back winning seasons since the early 1970s. The Cubs fan base accepts mediocrity because (1) hey, it's beautiful Wrigley Field, one of the best ballparks in the nation, and (2) the alternative is watching the White Sox.
OK, then that even further proves my point. The cubs fans have almost accepted mediocrity, so beane would be great for you guys.
