I can't imagine what the process must be like, trying to run the Cubs.
I mean, certainly the Ricketts have some nasty, powerful lawyers to help negotiate through this muck with the rooftop owners and their local politicians, but you have to think this is a pretty eye-opening experience for the Tom Family.
Kind of like a Hieronymus Bosch painting (go here and click on the thumbnails if you're not familiar).
If Vincent Van Gogh was an absinthe drinker, what the hell was old Hieronymus drinking?
The contract with the rooftop owners was signed in 2004 by the Tribune Co, and according to the owner of Murphy's Bleachers, Crane Kenney was involved.
Hey, the Trib had to be able to afford Neifi Perez SOMEHOW, right?
Anyway, I'm sure this thing is far from over, but cannot wait to see the actual plans.
Next, the Cubs/Giants series.
This bullpen problem doesn't seem like it'll go away any time soon.
Surprisingly tight, entertaining games that the Cubs coulda won.
Now we've got ex-Cub Kevin Gregg to the rescue.
Remember this game against the Astros when he gave up 4 runs in the top of the 9th?
Okay, nothing is really funny today with the explosions in Boston yesterday.
