CSN's David Kaplan has learned the Ricketts family and some Wrigley rooftop buildings are moving closer to a deal which would see some rooftops surrounding Wrigley Field sold to the Ricketts.
The Cubs' bullpen took a major step forward in 2014, earning a spot in the top half of the MLB in ERA (3.61), up 10 spots from the 2013 unit.
Theo Epstein has promised that the Cubs will be adding impact pitching from outside the organization. That means heading back into the free-agent market after the expensive Edwin Jackson mistake.

Team talk

    In Dale Sveum, the Cubs hired a no-excuses tough guy who works as a counterweight to the corporate front office -- a guy who won't be afraid to be the field general of the Cubs.

    Dale Sveum isn't a puppet manager -- a myth Theo Epstein wanted to bust immediately after announcing the Cubs' next manager. And while he doesn't have any experience, every good manager was once inexperienced.

    David Kaplan goes one-on-one with new Cubs manager Dale Sveum? How does the skipper plan to change Cubs culture and bring a World Series to the North Side?

  • 2y
    The timing was perfect for Dale Sveum, who will now try to direct to the Cubs to a World Series championship. Sveum was introduced at a Wrigley Field press conference earlier today.
  • 2y
    Now that the front office staff is in place and the Cubs have their new manager, when the heck will they start upgrading the roster in an attempt to turn the franchise around?
