Eh, it could happen. The only problem is that not everyone will boycott. Like the Roarks, people travel just to see Wrigley on opening day.

But I doubt Rickets will ever put up the cash for the team.

It has nothing to do with the Ricketts being stingy. It has everything to do with the fact that they don't have the scratch or the income to be the highest paid team in baseball and not fold in on themselves in a year or two. It wouldn't help anyway, since the only real outcome would be a massive inflation of player salaries across the league and that's not how teams are winning these days.

The name of the game now isn't high paid free agents anymore. It's in locking up potential stars to long term deals before they hit their prime and hoping that you can get some respectable utility guys who don't lose you too many games. Nobody is winning the series because of Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder NOW a couple years after they landed mega free agent deals. Those guys were supposed to be game changers and their stats at the time backed that up. But still no new rings for either of em.

Whelp, money is about to get dropped on Wrigley.

Quote:
The Chicago Cubs won unanimous approval from the Commission on Chicago Landmarks today for an ambitious $575 million remake of Wrigley Field.


Quote:
The Cubs say the additional advertising would provide more revenues that the team said it would use to pay for the reconstruction and build a winning team.

They're gonna need to put some of that money in the bank. Cue the rooftop owners' lawsuit.

Yeah, I have the feeling they know that's coming.

I think at this point (after skimming the article) it sounds like they have an ironclad "too bad so sad" deal with the city set up that is going to trump crybaby rooftop businesses.

I don't doubt they've got some greasy motherfuckers working on a defense. But the bottom line is that they had a 20 year contract with the rooftop owners. I hate the rooftops. They have an awful view of the game, the food is subpar, and they're super expensive. I personally feel like the organization should have given them the finger in 05 when they signed that contract. But I don't think it will be so clear cut. At the very least, the renovations cannot begin until the pending litigation is settled.
