Tribune makes first cuts in bidding process for Cubs, Wrigley

Just got wind of this via Tribune news alert...

Tribune Co. informed would-be buyers of the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field today whether they would be invited to continue in the auction based on last week's initial bids.

In typical sensationalistic fashion, a heavy favorite has been "cast aside" - apparently Canning & Co. came in with a lowball offer.  But I think it's pretty safe to say he'll be back.   This is only the first public step in a rather complicated, convulated, and complex selling/political process leading towards a final resolution.  Think Elaine Benes dancing while Charles Barkley swings a golf club in the background...
