MILWAUKEE – The Cubs Way is all talk. At least that’s how it sounds when the team has the worst record in the majors and the Wrigley Field renovation turns into a PR nightmare.
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.
