In our tradition of keeping all of us obsessive Cubs' fans apprised of "everything Cub", feel free to read about the latest Business article on the Rickets closing the deal [yaws, rolls eyes, stretches...]
I wonder what REALLY is going on? What is happening with the Utay Clan?
As part of this, how do we expect (if Ricketts) the new regime to handle the team? Will ownership truly try to blow stuff up in the first year? Would they launch Jim Hendry? Keep in-mind that Hendry was just signed to a four-year extension!
Of course, 2010 represents the "contract year" of several of our now core members, Lilly, DLee, et. al. It seems as if Lilly is our biggest trading chip while DLee is going to be 34. What about ticket prices?
Crane Kenny is a complete @&^k for raising prices again while giving us this shit - in spite of the dire economic conditions of the Country. This will certainly be the most interesting off-season in a very long time.
