Cubs Season Tickets Waitlist Update

If you're on the Cubs Season Ticket waitlist, you probably received an email this morning from the Cubs with good news. According to the email, the Cubs offered 2,600 new season tickets this year, so we can expect our waitlist numbers to decrease by that many. Additionally, the email indicated...

Cubs sold to Ricketts, finally!

The Sam Zell era is over. It was horrible, but not. You see, short term thinking kills franchises. Franchises of any sport are built with steady hands thinking long term. For every 1997 Florida Marlins World Series title (purchased and disassembled within 2 years), are dozens of franchises with lost...

MLB Approves Cubs Sale

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...

Huge Rooftop Discounts at Wrigley Done Right

Wrigley Done Right has plenty of tickets available for the Cubs/Sox games and Cubs/Indians games this week. They are partnering with the My Wrigleyville.com store to offer discounted Rooftop tickets. So, if you're thinking about going to the game, click on the link below, and make sure to use coupon...

Why we're gonna hate Tom Ricketts - Part I

The Cubs are about to acquire an Alex Rodriguez, except this A-ROD will never wear a uniform, swing for the fences, take a banned substance, shag flyballs during BP... or retire. No - this A-ROD will be the $31mm+ of annual interest payments on the debt Tom Ricketts will issue...

Hockey team bankruptcy has baseball implications

Last week, Jerry Moyes, the owner of the Phoenix Coyotes, placed his team into bankruptcy, touching off a showdown between the NHL and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court. As explained well in this WSJ Article by Matthew Futterman, the Bankruptcy Court is obligated to accept the highest bid for the team,...

Lou Gehrig Day at Wrigley Field

From the mailbag: Catch the Chicago Cubs Take on the Cincinnati Reds at the Les Turner ALS Foundation's 15th Annual Lou Gehrig Day at Wrigley Field Don't miss the excitement at the Les Turner ALS Foundation's 15th Annual Lou Gehrig Day at Wrigley Field on Sunday, July 26. The event...

Wrigley Field bike check review

Tired of paying for parking at the Cubs game? Need some extra funds to afford those Cubs tickets? Dating someone with 'Green Peace' tattooed on their ass? Then, the Wrigley Field Bike Check is your answer. For Cubs fans, there is a wide variety of transportation options for arriving at...

Cubs score big for the All-star game

Your favorite Cub is in all likelihood going to represent the National League in the all-star game on July 15. Alfonso Soriano, Kosuke Fukudome, and Geovany Soto were all voted in by the fans as starters for the game. Ryan Dempster, Kerry Wood, and Aramis Ramirez were all selected by...

Pirates struggling to put butts in the seats

In other news, man bites dog. Ron Cook of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes a column bashing new Pirates President Frank Coonelly for being satisfied with progress outside of the win-column. At the end of the column, he points out that the Pirates 'progress' hasn't made it as far as the...

Recycling the empties at Wrigley Field

Have you ever wondered what the Cubs do with all those empty beer cans after a game? Me neither... but I was waiting in line for day-of-game Cubs/Sox tickets yesterday and a truck from Bucktown Recycling pulled up to the gate. (The gate by the Harry Caray statue, I think...

TribCo Revenue Grab: Revenue Estimate for The Sandberg Game 2

Ryno's coming to Wrigley Field in July. I've already examined how this came about, now let's whip out our calculators (or Excel spreadsheets as the case may be.) and see if we can't get an estimate of the increased revenue to the ball club. For this exercise, I used my...

Win 2009 Cubs Season Tickets!

I joined the Cubs season ticket waiting list on October 3, 2006. I've moved up 65 slots since then, and there's still nearly 15,000 people above me on the waiting list. Depressing? You betcha. Anyhow, here's an opportunity that might land you season tickets a bit quicker than the waitlist....

TribCo Revenue Grab: Ryne Sandberg to manage at Wrigley

Deep in the Bowels of the Tribune Company, Sam Zell and a handful of Tribune Company executives are seated around a conference room table. Sam Zell: We took out too much debt to buy this blasted company. Everybody needs to come up with a way to make more money, pronto!...

Wrigley Field - Aisle 239

I went to the Cubs game on Monday night and sat in a section I hadn't sat in before: Aisle 239. The seats were fantastic for a number of reasons. Here's a photograph of the view from Aisle 239. Pros • Great views of everything, the game, people in the...

A strategy for cheap Cubs tickets

I went to the Cubs game last night and used one of my favorite strategies to score cheap Cubs tickets. Here's how it works. First, this strategy doesn't always work, but it's more reliable than your usual MLB Odds. Anyhow, the best games for this strategy are night games and...

MLB Road Trip: Quantifying the visiting fan

As you know, the Red Sox and their legions of fans showed up at Wrigley Field this weekend. Like Cubs fans, Red Sox fans are known for traveling with their team to support their favorite players in hostile territory. Although I wasn't in attendance at any of the games, quotes...

Weekend Update, With Byron Clarke

I love weekend update on Saturday Night Live, even if it was a little off this year. Man, I miss Jimmy Fallon. Well, I'm at the permahome for the second weekend in a row, and as I have discussed earlier, I feel completely removed from the broader world while I'm...

Playing "Dumb Ball"

Today was glorious. Perfect weather for a game, and fortune smiled down upon me. In February, I bought tickets to a game in May. It was one of the only games that still had bleacher seats available, and so I snapped them up with no guarantee that I would actually...
