Cubs Sale Completion Not Likely Till Season's Over

Maury Brown at Biz of Baseball writes today about why the Cubs sale is being delayed yet again:

The drawn out process for the sale of the storied franchise has had MLB cancel their scheduled August quarterly owners meetings. Without the sale approval process on the agenda, MLB saw the schedule thin, and therefore, sees no need to hold the meetings. While it is uncertain whether the process would be impacted, the possibility that Sam Zell will be pushed out as Chairman and CEO of Tribune could cloud matters.

The next meetings will be held November 17-19, shortly after the end of the World Series. The location of the meetings plays into the sale of the Cubs sale: They will be held in Chicago.

At this point, completing the sale is irrelevant to anything that happens this year. The roster is what it's going to be. This team will have to make it with what they've got. Finishing up things two weeks after the World Series is over, as noted in the article, should give new ownership time to get everything in place for a good offseason.
