Any one ever heard of a bizofbaseball site? Well, they feel that the Ricketts family may have won the bid for the Cubs.
There's also a bit in there about Stoney and his interest in minority ownership. Guess it goes that once Stoney found out Ricketts won the bid and his chance of getting into the ownership thing (something many of us bantered about in the past) was not about to happen, he signed his 6-year deal to be in the TV booth on the south side.
There are many links at their site that point to other articles, including the entire list of bidders at one time or another.
So, if this ends up being the guy (Thomas) and family (Ricketts), what does that do for the Cubs being perennial contenders? I don't know much about them but know they've made money off me since I have a TD/Ameritrade account.
I was always in favor of Don Levin just because having met the man and know 100% he's not only a Cubs fan but an outstanding businessman. After he dropped out, I had to consider Cuban - if not for just a minute - because he would not be afraid to spend.
So will the Ricketts spend and spend wisely? Will they continue this momentum so in 10 years we can all be talking about multiple WS titles?
