A Hundred Next Years
Just Read 'em!
The next to last hurdle in the Cubs sale process has just been cleared. The MLB Owners unanimously approved the sale of the Cubs to the Ricketts family. Linky Link
Since I think Sam Zell has been an atrocious owner (worse than the other TribCo suits that preceded him), I'm thrilled to see Tom Ricketts one step closer. The only big step left is the writing of checks and the turning over of keys.
I'll close with an off-the wall idea. MLB Owners should be required to leave a security deposit with their fan bases. I'm not sure on the details, but it should be something like 20% of the purchase price of the franchise. After 10 years, the fan base should then be allowed to vote on whether the owners can stay or must go (we're looking at you Peter Angelos!) If the owners do a really crappy job, the security deposit should be retained and refunded to people who bought tickets. Something like that.
Here's to a few World Series Titles. Good luck, Tom.
