    Cubs sale Finalized

    Ameet Sachdev reports on ChicagoBreakingNews.com that Tribune Co. has reached a deal to sell the Cubs and Wrigley field to the Ricketts family for about $900MM. The deal must now be court-approved and accepted by other MLB owners.
    This move could give the Cubs the financial flexibility to take on salary at the deadline.

    Re: Cubs sale Finalized

    Now the Cubs fans can quit using the ownership being in limbo as an excuse for this season.

    So what's your excuse going to be at the end of the year for the cardinals not winning the division?

    Re: Cubs sale Finalized

    Now the question becomes, how much money does the Ricketts family have to spend on the team. Everybody's assuming the payroll will stay the same or increase. That may or may not be the case.
