ESPN 1000 is reporting that Cubs president John McDonough has resigned to become the president of the Chicago Blackhawks of the NHL. McDonough joined the Cubs last October, after former president Andy MacPhail resigned to become the president of the Orioles. I dont know if this will affect the offseason or not, but Jim Hendry is expected to take over as GM/president. This most likely means the sale of the Cubs, which is expected to reach $1 billion, is moving along faster than expected.
