Don Levin is still in the picture to buy the Cubs

An article by Barry Rozner, IMHO the best Chicago sports columnist, today discusses Don Levin in consideration buying the Cubs.

I'm totally biased in favor of Don Levin owning the Cubs - plus actually considered campaigning for him to buy the Blackhawks if he didn't get the Cubs and Rocky Wirtz didn't take over - because of his classy approach in connecting with a fan base of a minor league hockey team in a big city. Don's ownership of the Wolves should be a benchmark on how professional teams shall be run.

He's been approved to see the books but none have yet been available.

While patient and as always saying the right thing, Levin wouldn't be surprised if the team sale won't occur until after the season.

He knows Zell has had to think this out and believes the ball park sale may work out better for the buyer. He's mindful that a greedy lease from the state won't help prospective buyers.

Don is obviously a smart businessman and, unlike what I've seen with Zell thus far, a gentleman. He understands what it will take to balance the mix financially that would make it a win-win situation for both the seller and buyer.

While patient he's still a bit anxious and is looking for resolution soon stating, "I just hope I can buy the team while I still have the strength to walk up the ramp at Wrigley Field".
