According to the Trib, the Ricketts family, owners of Ameritrade, may be putting together a bid for the Cubs.
I went to business school at the U of C with Pete Ricketts, and I know he and his brother Tom were Cubs fans. I attended several games with Pete when I was there. I haven't kept in close touch with Pete since school but did exchange e-mails with him a few times last year.
I don't know anything else about the bid itself or how MLB perceives the group, but I do think they would be great owners. Cubs fans and good people, too.
