News broke early Thursday morning that the Cubs will move forward with plans to renovate Wrigley Field.
One night at the winter meetings, in the lobby of a Walt Disney World resort, a team official described Jeff Samardzija’s camp and Theo Epstein’s front office playing a game of chicken.
Selling minority ownership shares won’t be a quick way to infuse Theo Epstein’s baseball operations department with more capital and help the Cubs act like a big-market team again.
Ryne Sandberg could sit for hours — maybe even days — and tell stories about what it was like playing at Wrigley Field for so many years.
Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts pushed back against the idea that selling minority ownership shares could signal deeper financial issues for the franchise.
