Mesa AZ to lose Cubs?

A contract clause could mean the Cubs might be looking for a new Spring Training home.

The team has an opt-out provision that could allow the Cubs to leave HoHoKam Stadium before their contract is up.

Under the contract, the Cubs can leave Mesa as early as spring 2012 for as little as $4.2 million.

The clause was included when the team signed a contract in 1996 and could be exercised in 2011. The actual 20-year contract expires in 2016.

Interesting to say the least, lets hope the Cubs and Mesa can get things straightened out.
